A cam­paign has been started to save a Ford Anglia from the jaws of the crusher. The owner, Joseph Gabrielli has been the vic­tim of credit card fraud, which has stripped him of funds to re­store, or store, his car.

The fu­ture of ‘Lady Jen­nie’, also known as ‘the Peo­ple’s Anglia’, is now in peril as a con­se­quence, as Joseph doesn’t want to see the car bro­ken up for spare parts.

It’s been off the road since 1986 and has lit­tle over 58,000 miles on the odome­ter. Joseph was geared up for the restora­tion but in­sists that the longer it takes for him to raise the money, the more likely it is the Anglia 105E will have to be dis­posed of.

Joseph has set up a fundrais­ing page to raise £1500 – mainly to cover new wings and gain a new MoT cer­tifi­cate. He states that any large do­na­tion will guarantee a shot of driv­ing the Anglia upon com­ple­tion – with the car brought to you.

‘I’ve had a few of­fers from peo­ple to buy this car, all to chop and mod­ify it,’ says Joseph. ‘Their choice of course, but af­ter hearing the orig­i­nal fam­ily tell me their mem­o­ries of the car I re­ally won’t see it scrapped or mod­i­fied.’

‘This is the last chance to get it re­stored prop­erly,’ he adds.

Go on – you know you want to save Lady Jen­nie, the ‘Peo­ple’s Anglia’.
