All prints are ultimate professional archival prints; silver halide based C-types are real photographic prints, created on light sensitive professional photographic paper using a finely balanced red, green & blue light source. The Photographic paper is FujiFilm Crystal Archive paper with a semi-matt finish the professional choice for framed prints . The paper is coated with a slightly stippled finish and gives a very natural photographic finish with subtle colour.

If for some reason you don’t want to frame this print, we can use Fuji Gloss Professional colour paper from the FujiFilm Crystal Archive range with a gloss finish, which accentuates the colour to give a punchy, rich feel, or Kodak Metallic paper which has a rich metallic base. The colours have a reflective, metallic and 3-dimensional feel to them, but these two options are not recommended for framed prints, For this option you need to let us know in the ‘Additional Information box’ when you are ordering.

Additional information about Neglected Ford V8 Pilot Automobile print:

March 1932 that Henry Ford introduced the world’s first mass-produced V-8 engine. The French took to it and after the Second World War produced an even smaller version of 2,158ccs; post-war Dagenham, however, reverted to the 3,622ccs V-8 and installed it in the Pilot.

The Pilot was Luxurious with genuine timber dashboards and far better status in gentlemanly circles.
Autocar grudgingly dubbed the Pilot “a hefty and valuable knockabout machine” – but it was a great deal better than that. Now rare, it can occasionally be seen in prestige auctions in its original liveries of dreary black and drearier beige (another consequence of post-war shortages) or as an almost coach-built “woody” shooting brake. It was the best of all Dagenham machines, solid as a rock and equipped with an engine that is one of the “all-time greats” of motoring history.
