    I have looked at the article in practical Classics for February 1992, and unfortunately your ‘Lad’ does not feature. Cars pictured are Standard Saloon 116AYT, Two tone deluxes BVJ788B and 1263ME, estate EYM689C, Super JVH818D, Van JBO222D and Venetian Gold Super saloon JFV**8F (can’t read the full number).

    Practical classics did, of course, publish many articles on the 105e and derivatives, partially because John Williams was an Editor, and also our President for a number of years!

    Thanks but I think the letter was from 1999 so maybe it’s in a latter mag.

    Hi Angliatech,

    I think your car may have been in South Wales previously.

    There was definitely a Seafoam Blue deluxe with the number LAD xxxE.

    Do you have any names of previous owners? My mother was Regional Officer for Wales at the time and the owner came to some meetings or club stands. Can’t remember his name but I think he was from the Gwent area.

    I have been through all my old photos today but could find none of this car. I’ve asked my mum to look through her Anglia photos.

    I’ve also been through each Practical Classics for 1999, checking the lists of featured cars in the front of each mag and your car does not appear to be in any.

    Can you be more specific with the date of the 1999 letter from PC? It could be that the article appeared at the end of 98 or not until early 2000. Furthermore, is your car specifically referred to in the letter, or could it have related to another car belonging to the owner at that time?

    Look forward to any further info you can provide….

    Thanks for the info and yes it did belong to a Mr Burkitt from raglan in gwent. It also has a plaque from annual show at whitbread magor on 7th june 1992.
    The letter from practical classics just says readers restoration story in novembers issue but has no date on the letter (the eitor is peter simpson)

    That’s how it looked back then.

    Yes – David Berkitt I think it was. The car is definitely the same one.
    Checked PC again and it did not appear in Readers Restorations in Nov 99 or Nov 98.

    From what I remember the car was tidy back then – what’s it like now?

    Hi, that is my Anglia. Wonderful to see that it still exists. I can give loads of history on this car and it also appeared in a major 6 page article in Ford Heritage magazine in about 1992 which I still have a copy of. David Alan Burkitt
