The restoration runs into the thousands of pounds it came into Craner Classics as part exchange from a lovely gentleman who also have other classic vehicles in his collection and I can assure you they are all in tip top condition he is a total enthusiast for many years he’s well known to us at Craner Classics and is very well respected.
If you’re looking for a classic car of this type of quality, look no further than this one it really is well worth viewing it drives absolutely tip top and looks striking in its two-tone colour.
EXTRA INFORMATION This was a reworked 100E body with the new 997cc overhead valve engine, four-speed gearbox and 'banjo' style rear end from the Anglia 105E, produced to offer a four-door model until replaced by the Ford Consul Classic. 38,154 were made, most of them in a two-tone colour scheme and deluxe trim.
Versions assembled in New Zealand had a rare 'factory fitted' heater (dealer fit was almost universal at the time) and plush carpet.
Drum brakes of 8 in (200 mm) diameter were fitted, hydraulically operated, and the suspension was independent at the front using MacPherson struts. The rear driven axle used semi elliptic leaf springs. The steering mechanism used a worm and peg system.
On test, The Motor magazine recorded a top speed of 73 mph (117 km/h) and acceleration from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 27.2 seconds. A "touring" fuel consumption of 36 miles per gallon (imperial) was recorded. On the home market, it cost £621, including taxes of £183.
Optional extras included a heater, windscreen washers, radio and leather upholstery to replace the standard PVC.
