The 105E Ford Anglia shared its launch with the Mini and Triumph Herald. The Anglia was once again bang- up to-date in terms of styling, although it was hardly in the same mold breaking category as the Mini. Ford had finally seen sense and had ditched the pre-war designed side valve engine and replaced it with a new overhead valve 997cc unit mated to a new four speed gearbox.
The Anglia's most recognisable feature was its "reverse slope" rear window which together with the cars pointed fins made it quite striking. The Anglia came as either a two door saloon or as a two door estate and in either basic or de-luxe trim levels. Production continued until the arrival of the Escort in 1967 with over 1,000,000 cars being made.
Offered here is a 1963 Estate, which has been fully restored in Sweden and equipped with a 1460cc engine. The car is said to have been in the care of just two owners and covered a mere 86000km from new, although the whole car has been rebuilt.
Finished in blue with blue vinyl interior, the car is in quite outstanding condition. The vendor invites interested parties to inspect the under-side of the car in order to fully appreciate the level of the works done.
The car was driven from Sweden with no dramas and now merely requires registering in the UK. One can download a form to this and the cost is just £55.
A rare opportunity to acquire a mint example of the mold breaking Ford.
