The year 1959 was an important one for the British automotive industry, with the BMC Mini, Triumph Herald, Saab 95 and of course, Ford’s Anglia 105E all being launched within months of each other. And while the Mini in particular may be getting all the tributes at the moment, we’re here to redress the balance for the mighty Anglebox — a car that forged its own path, and set the course for Ford for the next two decades. It’s hard to believe that the 105E is 60 — a car that continues to be an important part of the classic Ford scene. We pay our respects starting on page 29, and have chosen a couple of cracking feature cars (well, a car and a van...) that reflect both the original and…

Name: Lawrence Darcy Age: 28 Job: Skip Hire Location: Middlesex Car: 1976 Escort 1.3 Ghia Start condition: Unfinished project Condition now: Tail end of dummy build Time taken so far: Six months Lawrence Darcy? Yes, you’ve heard the name before thanks to his bike-engined Mk1 Fiesta. Totally defining the word bonkers, it was mad from the second you opened the lightweight doors, climbed in and nailed the thing sending it skitting sideways everywhere. It was simply excellent. But, as with most things outlandish, someone usually wants it more than you do and offers a big wad of cash. The trouble is, Lawrence had sworn, that was the last car he’d ever build, but then, something else very tempting comes a long and well, you know… An unfinished project can be a fantastic proposition, as long as it meets certain…

rac rally hits 75

Wales Rally GB, previously known as the RAC Rally, will be marking a momentous milestone in October - it will be the 75th time the UK’s premier rally has been run. Other than being postponed during the Second World War between 1939-50, the Suez Crisis in 1959 and an outbreak of foot and mouth disease in 1967, the Welsh Rally GB has been held every year since an inaugural official RAC Round Britain rally was held back in 1932. The event took its lead from the Monte Carlo rally, with crews and their cars setting off from all points in the UK on a gruelling 1000-mile route bound for Torquay on the English Riviera. Although the inaugural RAC rally didn’t have the cache of the Monte, Colonel AH Loughborough driving a…

back in the day

5 YEARS AGO OCTOBER 2014 With Cosworth celebrating its 55th anniversary back in 2013, it was only fitting that we mark the occasion with an issue dedicated to the legendary engineering outfit, headed up by an awesome 24-valve V6 Mk1 Capri from Finland. Also inside was one of Jim Clark’s BSCC Lotus Cortina, Sierra XR4i buying guide plus how to lower the Pop 100E. 10 YEARS AGO OCTOBER 2009 October? It must be new project car time!

rusty corner

Terminally-rotten old Fords Portuguese classic Ford fan, Bruno Martin has a knack for sniffing out old Ford projects in his home country, though we think he may have bitten off more than he can chew with this Thames (Anglia) 307E van which he describes as a ‘barn-find’ — though we think ‘lean-to find’ would be more appropriate, Bruno. The van is surprisingly complete, and as you can see, has been converted with side windows at some point. With or without them, it deserves to return to the auto-estrada. Spotted an unloved Ford on your travels? Email photos and details of your find to classicford.ed@kelsey. or you can write to us at the address over on page 5.…
