1958 Anglia 2-Pedal semi automatic *6300 miles only* For Sale

** Price reduced **

1958 Ford Anglia 2-pedal semi automatic. 2 owners (shows 1 previous on V5), as of today shows 6352 miles from new (warranted).

First owner from 1958 to 1999, then bought by a Ford main dealer as a showroom piece - they've provided a letter of authenticity and mileage confirmation. Prior to coming into my possession some sympathetic cosmetic rejuvenation work has been done inc. new bumpers, hubcaps, tyres, tailored carpet set. Totally original except for these items.

The exterior has never been welded, the original 2-tone interior is stunning and perfect (both front seat back foam is crumbling but that's it), great paint (obviously has marks and scratches here and there), all gauges fully working. On arrival with me it didn't run or stop due to years of storage and zero use but absolutely everything has now been done to make the car start, drive and stop perfectly. At some point it has been converted to Negative earth.

Work done:
Overhaul to complete braking system (every part inc. rebuilt master cylinder, 6 x new wheel cylinders, shoes, hoses, grease seals, fluid). All drums were as new and totally unscored.

Overhaul to carb (starts on the button - literally !)

Overhaul to vacuum wiper system (now work fine).

Replaced plugs, points, distributor cap, plug leads, coil, condensor, upper/lower hoses.

Flushed radiator, steam cleaned engine bay

The most unusual feature of the car is that it has the extremely rare semi automatic clutchless 2-pedal system - I believe this was available in either 1957/58 or possibly 1958 only. I've heard it referred to as both a "Newton" and "Manumatic" drive.

Pressing down on the white cap on the top of the gear lever actuates a solenoid allowing vacuum to open the clutch. Put the car in gear, the car will stay still until you press the accelerator which engages the centrifugal clutch and the car moves off. All gear changes are performed in the same way. This system was inoperative when I got the car but I worked out what was wrong (incorrect solenoid wiring, incorrect vacuum pipe routing and various vacuum leaks etc) and it now works perfectly.

Underneath is totally corrosion free with the exception of two VERY minor areas, one by the battery compartment and another being the seam at the base of the passenger rear wing. Both are very small (we're talking inches) but I'm being totally transparent here. Subject to offers received I can arrange for these minor repairs to be done to the highest standard possible.

This is a real time-warp car that may be totally unique and is one for the true small Ford enthusiast or collector - it's a rare model in staggering condition which can be used, enjoyed and displayed as is or very easily renovated to be a concours winning example.

Valuable registration "RAY 619" included in sale.

I can only display 6 photos here but have plenty more available which can be forwarded if required.

I'm open to serious offers and would consider an interesting p/x of any kind, especially American but anything considered. I like unusual vehicles so if it's odd or weird all the better.

Any trial and inspection most welcome, the car can be viewed in the Ilford, Essex area by prior arrangement. I have the car in a large dry, well lit storage unit so night time or bad weather present no problem

For more information call or text Russ on the details below 9am - 10pm any day.
