"My name is Paul and I have a 1959 Anglia 105E Deluxe which is probably the oldest 105E on the road. It is unrestored and to date has only done 31,000 miles from new. The 105E was introduced in the UK on 30th September 1959 and my car was registered on 7th October, just a week later. It has a very low chassis number and is in great condition. I have owned 4 other 105E's, a Mk2 Cortina, Mk2 Escort, 2 Mk2 Zodiacs and have driven countless other English Fords. But the Anglia is my favourite English Ford of all. I also own a 1959 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe so I have an examples of big and little fins!"

Hi Paul, Great looking car. I was wondering how you find out the exact date your car was manufactured? From what I can tell my car was also made in October 1959 and I am assuming was number 243 off the production line. Take a look at my pictures and let me know if I am reading the data plates right. Thanks, Lee

Lee,

I believe that the 1178 means that yours was the 1178th
built (could be 106E - Left Hand Drive).
If you have one of the original wheels that came with the
car,it will have a date stamped on one of the ears that the hubcap
slips over.It will read 10/59,or somthing like that.Let us know what
yours says.Mine's 126316.

- Doug

Lee, I'm not sure about how the numbers run although over here we have a historian on the Anglia owner's club. He may be able to give you an answer. If you go to the club's website www.fordanglia105eownersclub.co.uk you can register (free) to join in the various discussions. The historian is Aubone Braddon and he will happily help you if you send the photos that you have posted here. He's a nice guy with a collection of Anglias of different types. Sounds as if you have a real early export car, I'd love to see it!
Dave, thanks for the compliments on the car! I bought the car from the then club secretary in November 2000. The story of the car is that it has had three owners from new. The 105E was introduced in the UK on September 30th 1959 and my car was registered to its first owner on 7th October 1959. He kept it for 30 years to 1989 when it passed on to its second owner. It is a September built car and most of the car is original with only service parts being replaced. Paint and chrome are as it came in 1959. No restoration work has ever been done and it has never been welded. It has quite a few accessories including the steel sunvisor, radio, over riders, fog and spot lamps, wheel trims, heater plus two tone paint. It still has the original rubber mat in the trunk and even has the tag hanging from the rear light wiring! The chassis number is 13080 and it is possibly the oldest survivor. It's definitely the oldest original car. Mileage to date is just over 31,000. I try not to put too many miles on the car and really only take it to shows that are not too far from home. It is a pleasure to drive as it is still very tight and I love it to bits! If you want to know anything else feel free to post it here or e-mail me on racerboy@paulgatty.f2s.com

Paul
