Anglia 106e 1962
updated in: June 23 2008 Elvis has left
Yes. Our little friend is sold
and someone else is driving her now. We miss you. Be safe!
The nicest couple was here yesterday and the minute they drove
up we felt that yes, they're the ones!
Goodness. Suddenly they've grown up and moved out, haven't they.
Here's the old text for those interested:
This car has it's own website at: http://www.willhans.com/anglia/
The site has a lot of pictures and even
sound. However written only in swedish, which is why I supply
the short version here in English.
The car was restored in the beginning of the ninetees. New track
control arms (2005) and Cortina shocks up front. New tyres. (2005)
Inside is an interior from the first generation (1960) with cloth
and vinyl mixed. The seats is a bit sunburnt in places, but makes
a decent impression.
Under the hood everything is the original way except for the battery
being placed in the trunk, a bit of extra chrome and a modern
alternator. The hubcaps are included as well as the original front
bumper. The white lettering has now been removed.
The things needing fixing includes a sounding rear differential
(above 75km/h) and the fourth gear wanting to jump out during
loads. Spares are available. These are the reasons of the lowered
price as I lack the time to fix it myself.
The paintwork has flaws but the car is well polished and the paintjob
was evidently made with care. The car is missing the front and
c-pillar badges and needs detailing throughout to be perfect.
Several pictures on the website http://www.willhans.com/anglia/
are recently taken and the car does make a good impression.
A head turner.
Hardly any plastic
Just plain fun.
