Lot 126 - 1966 Ford Anglia
|Odometer reading||32,751 miles|
|Result||Sold - £2,464|
When the Anglia 105E was introduced in September 1959, Ford switched to an overhead valve engine for its smallest family saloon. The 997cc four cylinder unit proved to be a very reliable unit and lent itself to being tuned, hence the success in Formula 3 and Formula Junior. The suspension retained the McPherson strut at the front and live rear axle however the gearbox was uprated to a four-speed unit helping the Anglia to a top speed of 73mph. Styling of the 105E was interesting with an 'open mouth' grill and reverse sloping rear window. The Anglia was an outstanding success for Ford, selling more than a million units until production ended in 1967.
Originally registered on 13th July 1966, according to the V5C document, this Ford Anglia has had only two former keepers. With MoT test certificates dating back to 1978 when the mileage was 30,198, every indication is that the current odometer reading of 32,751 is correct although not warranted. Clearly some restoration work has been carried out on JKB 232D although we do not know when or by whom. The interior appears to be original and mechanically this 105E Anglia seems to be fine; the engine started and ran very well during our inspection. These cars are ideal for a DIY mechanic and parts are readily available through the various owners clubs.
