BUILDER: BARRY WIL­LIAMS FROM: UK

Classic Ford - - READERS PROJECTS SPECIAL -

Planned spec: 1660 Cross­flow, bike carbs, 105E axle

What’s the story: “I’m build­ing this 100E for a friend of mine,” re­veals Barry, “and I’m al­most at the end of what we’ve Chris­tened the Frank­in­pop.”

“It was com­pletely stan­dard when it drove into my garage, and the plan was to keep the orig­i­nal look on the out­side — the body­work is great with just a few age-re­lated bumps and knocks, and that rusty patina’d look. The car had all its run­ning gear re­moved and the bulk­head al­tered and a Capri tun­nel grafted into ac­cept the 1660 Cross­flow on bike carbs, along with a five- speed ‘box. The rear end is Anglia 105E while the front fea­tures Es­cort struts con­verted to coil- overs with top adapters to fit into the 100E shell, along with an Es­cort cross­mem­ber and steer­ing rack.

“The car is back on its wheels and run­ning — it’s just had a trip to the rollers to get en­gine run­ning nicely and will be MoT’d im­mi­nently, It’s never in­tended to be the shini­est thing on the block — it was al­ways meant to be a bit rough-look­ing around the edges — just for fun!”

100E looked like a great base for Barry to work with.

Whole fam­ily was roped into the build. Hot Cross­flow now fit­ted.
