This one is just too much fun to pass up. It only takes a quick
glance to know this 1948 Ford Anglia is not just some classic
British economy car. The slick paint and wheels are just a hint at
the mighty motor, overdrive transmission, and custom interior. This
is the unique build for someone who knows really cool things come
in small packages.
The Ford Anglia might have helped put England on wheels, but it's a
rare sight over here today. In fact, many British car fans might be
keen on seeing an Anglia at their favorite car show. But don't let
them get to close, or else this wild child might make them spill
their Sleepy Time tea. After all, the blue and this one is
super-slick. Plus, the expertly deleted bumpers, bright headlights,
large dual exhaust tips, LED taillights, and aggressively staggered
alloys will make anyone take notice. This is a cool interpretation
on how to take a classic economy car and make it into a
show-stopping custom build.
The custom work continues on the inside. There's the comfort of
four individual bucket seats. And the tan leather on there nicely
coordinates with the door panels, headliner, and carpeting for a
uniform presentation that will impress everyone. More than just
look great, you get all the right luxuries like power windows.
Plus, there is an AM/FM/CD/DVD touchscreen stereo expertly
integrated into the custom center console. The driver gets a nice
tan and chrome steering wheel. Beyond that is a full set of gauges,
including a column-mounted tach - a nice indication of something
good under the hood.
The engine bay has been given a full American makeover. The
4.3-liter V6 is over four times larger than what was available in
the original Anglia, and so you can see the whole presentation is
stuffed with power. In fact, the motor has been upgraded further
with a dual plenum air intake, Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor,
Edelbrock intake, and Hedman headers. So the growl of the dual
exhaust lets everyone know this classic Ford has some muscle. More
than just powerful, this one was built to be a true driver. Wilwood
front disc brakes, modern performance tires, and the updated
independent front suspension gives this classic all the right
moves. And the four-speed automatic transmission is great for
performance downshifts as well as overdrive cruising.
This a one-of-a-kind that won't disappoint with the smiles it gives
you in private, and the crowds it attracts in public. So if you
want something distinct, powerful, and absolutely cool, call
