THE ONE TO AVOID

Classic Ford - - READERS PROJECTS SPECIAL -

Al­though this Anglia 105E looks like a com­plete car, it’s thor­oughly rot­ten and would take an age to re­place the rusted chas­sis rails — yes it can be done, but put into the equa­tion the fact that the wings are to­tally shot and it’s an un­re­al­is­tic prospect. Hav­ing said this, OFAS can sup­ply ex­cel­lent and far cheaper glass­fi­bre wings for plenty of clas­sic Fords in­clud­ing the 105E.The bon­net is miss­ing, as are the en­gine and trans­mis­sion, the bright­work’s rub­bish and the in­te­rior — though com­plete — would need com­pletely re­plac­ing. Un­less you re­ally are ded­i­cated, or this car is of sen­ti­men­tal value, it’s sadly just too costly in terms of time and re­place­ment parts.
