Ford Anglia Images and Technical Specification



Ford Anglia Custom

Ford Anglia  


The Anglia 105E series was launched in the U.K. on September 30th 1959 and was Ford's new contender in the small family saloon class to replace the then ageing and increasingly uncompetitive Anglia/Prefect 105E series. To say it got off to a flying start would probably be an understatement. Just two models were available initially, the Standard and Deluxe Saloons. Both were powered by an overhead valve 997cc engine capable of up to 75mph whilst still returning excellent fuel economy figures.

This new engine had particularly oversquare proportions for the period, with a bore of 80.96mm and a stroke of 48.4mm, and was mated to Ford's first ever four-speed gearbox in a production saloon. The 105E's brakes consisted of 8ins x 1 ¼ins drums all round to give a reasonable degree of 'stopping power' whilst the steering was courtesy of the recirculatory ball system.
