The 105E was the final version of a series of Anglia models originally introduced by Ford in late 1939. The 105E followed on from the 100E introduced in 1953, and was in production from 1959 to 1967. It was available in two door saloon, three door estate car and two door van versions, with basic and deluxe standards of trim. The styling was American influenced with sweeping nose line, prominent eye headlamps, muted tail fins, and distinctive inward sloping rear window on the saloon version. The 105E was powered by a new overhead valve four cylinder ‘Kent’ engine of 997 cc, mated to a new four speed manual gearbox with synchromesh on the top three ratios. The front suspension used the Macpherson strut from the previous 100E, but the notoriously weak vacuum windscreen wiper system was replaced by a more conventional electric motor. Total production of all versions of the 105E was just over one million units.
On offer here is one of the Deluxe Estate versions from the final year of manufacture. This motor car was acquired by the vendor in 2000 in a very forlorn state, and has been the subject of a most comprehensive restoration that was finally completed in 2008. The bodyshell has been stripped back to bare metal, with all corroded sections cut out and repaired or replaced, including a new left hand front wing. The whole bodywork has been resprayed and is now in very good condition. The bumpers and many other parts have been re-chromed and the grille anodised. The engine has been stripped, checked and re-assembled with new gaskets. All other mechanical equipment is understood to be in very good condition, with many new parts. All tyres are new, and there is a complete stainless steel exhaust system. The interior retains the original blue vinyl seating which is in pleasing condition, and the headlining, floor covering dash and instrumentation are all stated by the vendor to be in very good condition.
This motor car has covered only 800 miles since the restoration was completed, and therefore represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a good example of one of these now rare vehicles. It comes with a V5C registration certificate and a very comprehensive photographic record of the restoration work carried out.
