Ford-Werke AG, Cologne-Niehl

 

 

 

 

 

The Ford Motor Company AG was created for the German market in Berlin in 1926. In 1931, it moved to Cologne. Starting from 1935, it was converted to an independent German automotive company. In 1939, it was renamed to Ford Werke AG. Ford passenger cars were far common, not only in Germany. The predominant portion of Ford passenger cars on German roads originated from the Ford factory in Cologne. On 1st December 1938, 101,837 Ford passenger cars were registered in the German Reich. In addition, Ford produced approximately 1,900 s. gl. Einheits-Pkw. The most important lorry models which were used by the Wehrmacht were the Ford BB and the different types of 3 tons lorries.
Ford omnibuses were quite frequent, too. Because Ford made lorries up to 3 tons payload, only chassis for light and middle omnibuses were made. Usually, the radiator masks of the standard lorries were used. Due to the popularity of streamline omnibuses in the 1930s, modified radiator masks of Ford passenger cars were used, too.
