1957 Ford Anglia
1957 Ford Anglia
The Ford Anglia is a small family car which was designed and manufactured by Ford UK. It is related to the Ford Prefect and the later Ford Popular. The Anglia name was applied to various models between 1939 and 1967. A total of 1,594,486 Anglia's were produced. It was replaced by the Ford Escort.
For consignment, a far cry from the original car which rolled off the Ford Brit line in 1957, which had a top speed of 57mph and would go from 0 to 50 in 38.3 wristwatch watching seconds! It is now fitted with a custom frame, full roll cage, and retains most of its original outside looks, but with its huge rear tires, narrowed rear axle and sans drivetrain it's ready to become the reality of all of your dreams. Read on chaps!
Looking decidedly British with its small stature single headlight and stainless-steel mesh grille we have a truck in the form of an Anglia panel van. It's small, it's cute and has the windows covered over for the cargo area. Access to this area is through the center out swinging rear doors. Gray primer has been applied to the entire body and what little chrome adorns the body is in usable but slightly worn condition. Out back, flanking the dual louvered rear doors are partial taillights and down below are chrome wheelie bars. Stuffed underneath are natural finish 15" Centerline wheels, 15" all around and are wrapped in 24x5x15's in front and in back giant 33x12.50x15's Smoke 'em if ya got 'em and this baby could have the potential to do so!
Red painted steel makes up the inside of this stripped down interior. Unfinished and ready to be designed to your personal taste, with no seating, door panels or headliner. A basic steering column rises from the stripped red steel dash and below, covering most of the front flooring is black carpeting. A dual reservoir master cylinder hangs from the dash as does an adjustable proportioning valve. Moving rearward we see exposed steel flooring then an open view of the intricate rear suspension and axle. A full roll cage has been installed but does have door bar swing outs to make entrance and exit much easier.
Lifting the forward hinged hood reveals the custom frame and front suspension but little else. Extensions of the roll cage are noted as is the steering gear. With all the custom work done here any amount of cubic inches will fit and the only limitation is how much engine you want sticking out of the hood. A narrowed Ford 9" rear axle fills the space inside the body and is equipped with 5.13 gears.
Very nicely done underneath with nary even a hint of road dirt, just solid black and silver steel. A 4-inch drop axle is seen up front along with coilovers and in the rear we note a ladder bar setup with coil overs. Disc brakes are seen all around and the aforementioned wheelie bars are securely tied to the rear axle.
The beginnings of a very unique build with the vast majority of the hard work already done for you. The sky's the limit for this Anglia...mild or wild, the choice is yours. I say ol chap, start turning the wrenches and let's go for a spin!
