Rebuilt at over £40,000, this FIA Homologation-specification Anglia is the perfect entry-level historic racer with equally capable road performance.


The hugely popular Anglia set a Ford of Britain production record in 1960, its maiden year of production, having built over 190,000 Anglias. Following on from this success, the Anglia became available in ‘Super’ specification in 1962, offering a higher level of equipment, the engine capacity increased to a longer-stroke 1,198cc and now fitted with the all-synchromesh, 4-speed gearbox from the Cortina. Additionally, there was more chrome, a luxury interior and a heater as standard with contrasting coloured side-stripe distinguishing the Super from its 997cc sibling. The engine was capable of being modified to produce much more power, and it became the motive power unit for various forms of motorsport including circuit racing and rallies alike. An Anglia was entered in the Monte Carlo Rally from 1960-1965 finishing consistently above its station, and today rally and racing Anglias are still an important and competitive part of the historic scene, and are homologated by the FIA at 997cc, 1198cc and 1340cc.

Offered here is a fabulously prepared 1964 Ford Anglia 1200 Super, built to FIA 1175 Homologation specification but, despite having benefitted from a comprehensive re-build costing in excess of £40,000, the car has seen very little use and is ready to go.

Originally used for rallying, this car has a long competitive history and has enjoyed plenty of success whilst in the hands of Patrice Wattine and others. It went on to race within the HSCC - Dunlop Thermex championships before a complete strip and rebuild began.

The restoration was meticulous to say the least, and the bills verify the story and current condition. The shell was fully seam-welded with a stiffened and strengthened floor to facilitate the roll cage, with the whole car stripped to bare metal, its underside bead-blasted to remove all previous paint. Brand new, original specification Ford steel wings were purchased, new door shut panels were welded in to get the newly re-skinned doors to fit the body apertures correctly, and new rear panels were also fitted. The exterior, interior and underside were sprayed then baked. The doors with their new skins were then fitted with a brand new window kit and laminated windscreen.

The car is fitted with a DAMICO 1,200cc engine built to strict FIA specification. It's currently limited to 7,500rpm for longevity and is capable of reaching more than 8,500rpm if required, but in its current state of tune produces in the region of 130bhp. It's mated to a close-ratio gearbox and racing clutch with new bearings and seals. All engine components are new and balanced, the block and head have been extensively worked on and the cam was specifically chosen to make the car easy to live with, and to provide a smooth power delivery without being too 'cammy'. To ensure long distance races such as the Spa 6-Hours are feasible, the car is fitted with a 12 gallon foam-filled fuel tank and, for track limitations, the current exhaust setup is a 105 decibel system designed and fitted by Alan Dent. The suspension was modified within FIA regulations and corner weighted by Alan Dent. New bearings, seals and flexible brake pipes were fitted and the entire braking system was replaced, along with new dampers all round and FIA compliant disc brakes to the front.

The dashboard is as per the original car, with the addition of an electronic rev counter and an extra large oil warning light. An MSA/FIA compliant rain light is fitted, as is an electric fan and a fire extinguisher system. The racing seat is suitable for a HANS Device and is compliant with FIA/MSA regulations. Complete with its all-important HTP papers, this car offers the opportunity to take part in a diverse selection of race series such as FIA road rallies, historical events such as the U2TC Championships, Goodwood Revival, Spa 6-Hours and many more.

Benefiting from being fully road-registered, this fantastic motor car is to be sold complete with a UK V5 logbook and a vast history file containing comprehensive details and photographs of its restoration. This versatile little Anglia is crying out not to be stuck in a garage in the Cotswolds with a doting custodian but should be back on the circuits with the HSCC, tarmac rallying, Prescott and Shelsley, or possibly even used as the most fun way to get between pubs on a Sunday afternoon.
