Lot 268 - 1961 Ford Anglia 105E
|Result||Sold - £1,698|
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 Three 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’ grille and reverse sloping rear window. The Anglia was an outstanding success for Ford, selling more than a million units until production ended in 1967.
This Ford Anglia is presented in red and according to DVLA records it was originally registered on 5th September 1961, and has had only three former keepers. The car is offered from a private collection where it was found in a barn and appears to have been overlooked for a number of years. Offered to auction at no reserve, this Anglia could be a rewarding restoration project for a budding Ford enthusiast.
