Ford Anglia Super 123E (1962 – 1968)

All fins and chrome from Ford
The Ford Anglia Super 123E joined the Ford ranks above the 105E launched in 1959 with a bigger more powerful version of the original engine now in its fourth generation the Anglia was a brand new car with American styling brought to the UK with the Super sporting fins, chrome and two tone paint, it looked amazing.

The more powerful in line four cylinder engines produced nearly 50 bhp and could travel at speeds exceeding the countries national limit so it didn’t just look the part it was also a hoot to drive with an all synchromesh gear box as well.

Just over one million Ford Anglia’s were made before production ended in 1968 as Ford introduced the Escort to the World for the first time. These days the Ford Anglia is one of Britain’s much loved classics from an inspiring era of motoring and has also earned itself celebrity status thanks to one Mr Potter from the recent films.

A BUYERS GUIDE
  • The Ford Anglia is a lot harder to find these days with many being killed off by corrosion so let’s take a look at the ones that a left. Talking about corrosion, floorpans, sills, rear spring hangers and jacking points need to be inspected as well as inner wings and Macpherson strut tops need to be checked as they can rot away leaving the car to collapse around the suspension. Other areas to check are rear valance, cross member, around the head lights and door bottoms and front wings.
  • The 123E engine is strong providing it is well maintained so inspect the vehicles history. Listen for any knocks when up to speed as this could mean worn main bearings and if you detect a smell of oil this could be coming from the oil breather.
    Back axles, gear boxes and clutches prove hard wearing so not normally a problem. When test driving the car feel for any shimmying through the steering this could simply be tracking or it might be suspension struts so check.
  • Some of the brightwork is rare nowadays, take for example the front bumper, a part shared with Lotus on the Elan+2 and the Europa so if one comes up for sale it might be pricey.
  • With the Super model being so hard to find these days getting your hands on replacement parts from original cars is not easy, make sure the interior has nothing missing otherwise you may have to just live with it.

INTERESTING FACT

In October 1962, 24-year-old twins Tony and Michael Brookes and a group of friends took an Anglia 105E fitted with a Ford Performance Kit to Montlhery Autodrome near Paris and captured six International Class G World Records averaging 83.47 mph. These were over 4, 5, 6 and 7 days with distances up to 15,000 and 20,000 km. The Anglia’s strength and durability meant only tyre changes were required.

Mark Wilkinson (Managing Partner of Heritage Classic Car Insurance) says

“The Sixties was a time when cars became highly popular and the buying public demanded more from our car manufacturers. Ford certainly lived up to this with the Anglia and its synchromesh gears and free revving engine.”
