The Anglia 105E was built by the UK division of Ford, between 1959 and 1967. They were assembled in the United Kingdom, Australia, and South Africa. The 105E was part of a series of Anglia cars that were in the supermini class of cars. It was a massive success, with production of a total of 1,004,737 units. In 1960, the first full production year of the 105E, 191,752 Anglias were sold, setting a new production-volume record for the Ford Motor Company.
Body style choices were a 2-door saloon, 3-door estate car, and a 2-door panel van. The standard engine was an overhead valve 997 cc (60.8 cu in) OHV I4. It was a small car, with a wheelbase of 90.5 in (2,299 mm), length of 154 in (3,912 mm), width 56 in (1,422 mm), height of 56 in (1,422 mm), and a curb weight 1,624 lb (737 kg) for the saloon.
The 1968 Ford Anglia 105E came as a an Estate or Saloon body type. The sedan (Saloon) was 2-door with a front engine, RWD (rear-wheel drive) and a manual 4-speed transmission. It used a petrol (gasoline) engine with displacement of 997 cm3 or 60.8 cubic inches. The advertised power was 26-29 kW / 35-39 hp / 35-39 PS, and the torque was 67-71.5 Nm / 49-53 lb-ft. Top speed was 119 km/h or 74 mph. It could go from 0-60 mph in 24.1 seconds or 0-100 km/h in 26.9 seconds. The 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) was 22.1 seconds.
The 105E was capable of 75 mph, which was fast enough for being a daily driver for urban European drivers. It was small and light enough to get good gas milage as well. The 4-speed manual transmission and quick acceleration in low gears made it a fun city driving car.
What really excited the buying public was its styling. The long nose and reverse-rake rear window and rear fins showed the American influence in the design. The Deluxe version of the Saloon had lots of extra chrome and a two-tone paintjob.
It was not extraordinarily powerful, but it was fun to drive. It was convenient for city dwelling people to use as a daily driver for a commute. To make the car more family friendly, the next version, the 107E came as a 4-door coupe. Now the 105E cars are prized by collectors. All over the world, you will find owners groups who meet up to share their love of these unique small cars.
