The Ford Anglia replaced the previous Ford 7Y model in 1939 and continued in production until 1967. There were essentially three body styles over that period.
The Anglia was similar in looks to the Ford Prefect and the Ford Popular
The original two-box with an almost vertical rear end, a three-box shape where the boot was bigger and the final and iconic reverse sloping rear window model.
That model is still raced today at classic car meets, and is a firm favourite with fans. The first Ford Escorts replaced this Anglia model in 1967.
They were produced mainly in Dagenham England and in Victoria, Australia but the last three years the assembly was done at Halewood UK.
Apart from the Reverse sloping rear window Ford Anglias were very similar to the Ford Prefects and Ford Populars, which were all produced in the same era.
Just under 1,600,000 Ford Anglias were produced over the 28 year lifespan of the brand.
The one model of the Anglia (E04A) that was produced in Australia included a 4 seater tourer and a 2 seater convertible.
