|Odometer reading||33,835 miles|
- Desirable colour combination
- Recently restored
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 July 1960 and the car is in good order throughout following a comprehensive restoration. Contained within the history file there is a photographic account of the restoration. We are informed the car starts on the button and drives with no known faults, this 105E certainly evokes memories to men of a certain age. Supplied with a V5C registration document, showing four former keepers and offered for sale without reserve, this Ford Anglia 997 is sure to appeal to classic Ford collectors.
