    '66 Anglia Estate

    Ford Anglia Estate 1200 De Luxe

    I have recently spent over £1000 on this car having most of the front end rebuilt, new sills & engine bay respray.

    Ford Anglia Estate 1200 De Luxe

    1550 Pre-crossflow:

    - Lotus crank and rods, Cosworth steel main caps, lightened, polished and balanced
    - +40 Power Max pistons
    - Kent 244 cam
    - duplex timing gear
    - full race head (port, polish, big valves etc.) steel rocker shaft and posts. Heat wrapped Geoff Howe Manifold, twin DCOE 40’s.
    - High capacity high pressure oil pump, fully baffled sump.
    - Aldon racing distributor
    - 2" Powerflow Stainless Exhaust

    2000e Gearbox

    Classic Struts, -3" springs.

    Decambered -2" Leaf springs, 2 inch lowering blocks, Anti Tramp bars.

    Lotus Steels

    Recently fitted:

    - Rev counter
    - Speedo cable
    - Alloy rocker cover
    - Battery cut off switch
    - New Facet fuel pump
    - 3.89 Diff

    Bad bits:

    - Doors shut badly
    - No carpet or headlining
    - Few scabby bits but it is solid (will get better pics)
    - Bad earth to the headlights (I only drive it in daylight so not bothered to sort it)
    - Runs quite hot, but it does have a 'leccy fan on a switch
    - Small oil leak from the gearbox
    - Halfshaft bearings were noisy when I changed the Diff, not noticeable when driving though.

    This car is great fun but it is not comfy! It is noisy & smelly & your missus will HATE it. It is not tidy but is solid. It does need body work & could do with a stripdown & respray but it has all the right kit

    £1,800

    Car is in Bridgwater, Somerset







    Okay I believe you, but my Tommy gun don't...

    Re: '66 Anglia Estate

    Car's not sold. Bedford CA Freak is coming to view it on saturday.
    I have the new keepers slip of the V5 & have sent off for a new one.

    MOT is till August 20th.

    Here are some new pics, as you can see there are a few patches of bodywork that need sorting, the wings are glassfibre & are smoothed into the bodywork, but painted in yet. Same with the sills, they were replaced & have not been painted in. I caught the rear valance & that needs repairing. There's a small bit of rust on the N/S rear quarter that is bubbling through, same on the doors. There are no door cards fitted but I do have them in my garage. No carpet or headlining though.

    Here are some more up to date pics. It is solid, just needs a good tidy up. I've run it around like this but I guess most people like shiny paint.
