Lot 239 - 1967 Ford Anglia DeLuxe
|Odometer reading||38,917 miles|
|Result||Sold - £5,600|
The Ford Anglia is a car that was manufactured from 1939 through until 1967. A total of 1,594,486 Anglias were produced. The fourth Anglia model, the 105E, was introduced in 1959. Its American-influenced styling included a sweeping nose line, and on deluxe versions, a full-width slanted chrome grille in between prominent headlamps. Its smoothly sloped line looked more like a 1950s Studebaker, possibly because its British designers used wind-tunnel testing and streamlining. The car sported a backward-slanted rear window (so that it would remain clear in rain, according to contemporary marketing claims) this styling was also used on the Consul Classic. In South Africa, the Anglia's popularity came late. Sales really took off in early 1966, with the introduction of the Anglia Superproduction continued longer in South Africa than anywhere else; it was built alongside the Escort from remaining stock until the end of 1968.
Originally supplied by Crystal of Hull Ltd. on 7th July 1967, this Ford Anglia is a one-owner vehicle from new and comes supplied with the original buff logbook and a V5 registration document, together with the original service and handbook. Also supplied are a fine collection of MoT test certificates dating back to 1978 when the mileage was 19,989, thus confirming the current odometer reading of 38,917 to be correct. Having been dry stored since 1999, although we are advised she was started regularly, LKH 912E is in sound original condition, albeit not concours. She will need a little time and effort to bring her back to a very high standard, however where else can you find a 49 year old Ford Anglia that has only had one owner and has covered such a low mileage. Finished in spruce green with matching trim, this 105E is offered at no reserve and could well be a bargain.
