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 Anglia was first registered on 1st March 1960. Presented in good order throughout it can only be classed as a genuine example with many original items still in place after 60 years. Starting on the button and driving with no known faults this 105E certainly evokes memories to men and women of a certain age. Supplied with a V5C registration document, showing four former keepers this Ford Anglia 997 is sure to appeal to classic Ford collectors. Recently fitted with new carpets throughout the Anglia looks superb and is huge amounts of fun! Offered for sale without reserve this is a fantastic opportunity.
