The Anglia 105E was launched in 1959 and had the new 'Kent' engine with four speed gearbox and individual bucket seats. Ford also anticipated the high gearing that would be needed for Britain's new motorways. Billed as the 'world’s most exciting light car', the Anglia became the basis for Ford models for several generations.

Within months of launch, more than 1,000 Anglias per day were being produced. In 1961 the estate and van appeared, with the more handsomely trimmed and powerful 1200cc 123E Super model a year later.

This 123E Super is one of the last of over one million Anglias to be produced and has a remarkably low 32,000 miles on the clock.
