Ford's fourth and last Anglia - the 105E - broke cover in 1959. The styling displayed a strong American influence and included a sweeping nose, notchback rear window, and muted tail fins. The newcomer benefited from an equally new engine, a 997cc OHV straight-four unit codenamed `Kent', versions of which powered all manner of Fords for years after. It was mated to a four-speed manual gearbox with synchromesh on the top three ratios. The suspension was by MacPherson strut at the front and leaf-sprung live axle at the rear.
This early 105E was manufactured in 1960 and was UK registered in October that year. Passing through ten former keepers, the Anglia was comprehensively restored over a year between 2018 and 2019. Showing a recorded mileage of 26,500 miles, the Anglia is finished in the attractive colour combination of Speedway Blue with a two-tone Blue interior. The comprehensive restoration included a re-rung engine with new shells, gaskets and pumps, a new wiring loom, a new windscreen, and new steering joints and bushes. Additionally, benefitting from brake renovation, interior refresh encompassing new door cards and headlining, suspension refurbishment, and a gearbox overhaul. Furthermore, subject to re-chromed parts, a stainless-steel exhaust system, and new battery. Uprated with the Milton front disc brake conversion, alternator and electric ignition, and an electric fan and triple-core radiator. The Anglia is offered with an MOT until September 2021 with no advisories and a V5C.
