Can't say I've ever seen one Mark. I'll have a look over the weekend when I bring your other bits back and swap them for our other bits. See you then.

The only place I saw them advertised was in a Mag called Auto Performance(circa 1972)...£195 if memory is correct .I'll see if I can find an ad

Hi Just joined the site after reading your message online.
The Anglebug was built by Phil Haig Auto in Stockport Cheshire. On the Anglebug pages on the Ford Anglia Site it states there is no record of how many were built. I built one with my dad from April in 1972 and had it on the the road in January 1973! You purchased the body and chassis and they gave you a modified pedal cluster. Mine was built from the machanics /electrics off a Ford Anglia including the 105E engine. I was eighteen at the time and the insurance was £120 a year TPFF! I met a guy with a 1600cc engine in his.....! I'm happy to share any info. I have. Regards
