This is my new project Anglia. Looks pretty bad but needs rescue so can’t wait to get started.
1964 Standard model, old lady owned before the guy I’m getting it from.
Engine is in the boot needing a crank grind and full rebuild:

Rear engined Anglia :o Now theres a novelty. :) My first car was a 1964 Standard Anglia which I bought in 1967 when I was 19. Cost me £299. I waited 40 years to buy my second Anglia, a 1967 Super. :D Good luck with the project.

Looks very original right down to the black wiper arms which is correct for a standard model.
If I could see the reg I can let you know where and when it was registered.
Interesting that it has overiders on a base model. The W.R.V.S. used base models with overiders and not a lot of people know that. :)May 15, 2010 at 12:14 am #23558
Little rough but it looks likes a sweet project. Good Luck, can’t to see what it will look like finished. Looks like you already polished the mirrors and front bumper (no rust that I can see).

Haven’t seen it yet, going tomorrow to collect the engine.
Aubone, it was 1st registered in Middlesex and has had only 1 lady owner for its first 40 years or so.
I’ll update the thread as I go along :wink:May 15, 2010 at 6:47 am #23562
Tom, very nice indeed. Looking forward to seeing more of this one. When your done, send me the details and I will put it on our books….. another basic/standard model…. very nice.
I will post up some pics of the Anglia that I have recently bought too, shortly.May 15, 2010 at 7:23 am #23563May 15, 2010 at 8:13 am #23564May 15, 2010 at 8:23 am #23565
Friend of a friend that moved to near whitby from down south. He had used it for about 3 years down there until the big ends went. Started to fix it and err here it is. He brought it up on a trailer.May 15, 2010 at 9:41 am #23566
Check out Erimus Engines, Thornaby Triangle 01642 677389, they should be able to do the crank and bores, no idea of the cost. Shells available through the club when you know the sizes. pistons also available in the club.
Stuart got his Fiesta Mk1 engine re built and fitted by Teesside Motor Factors £1000 + ( not as good as we expected).May 17, 2010 at 7:05 am #23568
Cheers Don, I’ll keep them in mind.
I went to see it yesterday and we blasted the crud off it and it looks a lot better.
Brought the engine home completely in bits and sadly the pistons and rods are missing so it’s a non starter (geddit? non starter? I’ll get me coat) Pushrods have just rotted away.
So, looking for a good 997 engine if anyone has one that they want to sell??
few more pics:
Rust wise it’s gone in the usual places behind the bottom of the front wings at the jacking points, the bottom of the front panel needs a patch and the strut tops need a bit of attention.
The interior is in very good condition.
The problem is that I’m not a welder so I’ll have to pay someone to do it.
Any offers? :lol:May 17, 2010 at 9:24 pm #23570
I am really impressed. Looks solid enough to me and oozes potential.
Interesting dead lock on the drivers door.May 18, 2010 at 5:46 am #23572
Aye, it has one on the passenger door too, the previous only owner had them fitted, still have the keys too.May 18, 2010 at 4:33 pm #23573
Looks like a great project. That interior looks like it will clean up to as new condition. What’s the mileage? Neil over on 105speed mentioned he had a low mileage engine on one of the “Parts Wanted” threads – don’t know whether it’s still available.
