Part-prepped for rallying
Heavy duty suspension
Four-branch manifold and performance cam
With its narrow body, rear-wheel-drive, easily tuneable engine and range of off-the-shelf performance parts, it’s no wonder that the Ford Anglia 105E was such a popular car in the motorsport world of the 1960s and 1970s.
Indeed, it still is today. The Anglia is a hugely popular car in rally and racing, partly because of its affordability and also because it is so easy to tune and maintain.
This example started life as a standard Anglia Deluxe in 1966 but has evolved a bit since then, now sitting on fat 13-inch alloy wheels and with widened front and rear bodywork, raised ride height, heavy-duty rally suspension, rally seats and harnesses. It also has a very different powertrain, with a 2.0-litre Pinto engine and five-speed manual box from a Ford Capri.
It’s the perfect car for clubman events, and a blank canvas should you wish to take it to the next level of historic rallying.
THE HISTORY AND PAPERWORK
Registered May 1966
Supplied with a current V5C registration document
In a private collection since 2015
Some build history
OMP racing seats
OMP Alcantara motorsport steering wheel
Fuel and electric cut-off switches
There are a number of modifications on the Anglia that make it suitable for road and club rallying but to take it to full historic rallying spec you’d need to add a roll cage and proper timing gear. As it is, it’s perfect for club, autotest and gymkhana events and has supportive OMP racing seats, four-point harnesses, an Alcantara three-spoke sports wheel and additional cut-off switches for the fuel and electric supplies.
It's the perfect base for a motorsport upgrade, or to use as is as a modified road car for controlled events.
Structurally brilliant underneath
Minilite-style 13-inch alloy wheels
The Anglia was rebuilt into the form you see it now, with widened front and rear arches and a raised ride height, ideal for uneven surfaces.
The white paint is superb and underneath it’s immaculate – it’s quite clearly a car that has been professionally built by someone who know their stuff.
The look is completed by the bumpers being removed, along with black headlight surrounds, door handles and bullet mirrors. It’s a very cool-looking thing.
2.0 litre Pinto from a Capri
Five-speed manual transmission
Upgraded carb and cam
Under the bonnet, the original ‘Kent’ engine has been swapped out for a 2.0-litre ‘Pinto’ unit. This one has an upgraded Weber carburettor, a four-branch performance manifold, electronic ignition, performance HT leads and an upgraded camshaft.
It is said by the vendor to be great to drive with lively performance, fed through a widened stainless sports exhaust system for added noise and power.
The front suspension is fully adjustable and the rear leaf springs are strengthened for extra grip and reduced body roll. It’s beautifully done and promises to be terrific fun.
If you want something for club events, as a fast and hugely entertaining road car or as the basis to take to the next level in historic motorsports, then this Anglia has the lot. It’s brimming with character, is immaculately presented and has enormous potential, while remaining entirely road legal.
