This incredible Ford Anglia 105E is finished in two-tone body painting of Ermine White over Lime Green (code BCBA), a delightful period colour scheme to compliment the unique Anglia shape. A brilliant polished finish to the paintwork is hugely pleasing to onlookers and only minor finish imperfections can be seen upon intense inspection. Structurally excellent and with pin straight panel fit, this example has been beautifully preserved with remedial cosmetic refurbishment. The extensive Deluxe chrome work including the boot lid badge is largely in superb order although some brightwork pieces display minor pitting. The rubbers have aged and show some perishing. A charming example guaranteed to draw much admiration
The spacious interior of this remarkable Ford Anglia is a collectors dream. The two-tone PVC seat trim complements the exterior beautifully in light and dark green. The door cards, washable plastic headlining and ornamental metal dash is pristine and only the driver’s seat shows slight aging. Deluxe features all remain fitted such as the two rear ashtrays, demister shrouds in bright metal and a virtually unworn flecked coloured rubber floor covering. All controls, gauges and switches function perfectly. The boot area still houses the correct protective floor covering and rubber spare wheel strap with factory jack. Simply divine.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The heart of this Anglia is the brilliant 4-cylinder, water cooled 997cc engine which was new at the time and introduced the famous Kent code name to Ford. Technical innovations allowed 39bhp and 53lbs/ft of torque to be produced while returning 40 plus mpg. Ford claimed in their sales brochures it was ‘more akin to a six cylinder unit!’ The engine bay is clean but not detailed and displays factory information plates. The close-ratio 4-speed gearbox with a snap-through change is fabulous. As factory standard, there is no synchromesh on first gear.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Pressed steel wheels with wide base rims are fitted with immaculate and bright metal hubcaps. New 145/80 R13 tyres are fitted . Hydraulic internal expanding 8” drum brakes with two leading shoes up front stop this light car admirably.
First registered on the 12th March 1962 this cherished example has only had five former keepers. Enthusiast owned throughout with much period literature including a sales brochure, schedule of maximum repair charges and a pamphlet entitled, ‘your new Anglia…’ all make fascinating reading. A collection of MOT certificates spanning 37 years and documents pertaining to the Ford Anglia 105E Owners Club complete the file.
