The predecessor to Ford of Europe’s super cool Escort (not to be confused with the abysmal US based front-drive CE14 based Escort) was called the Anglia — a patriotic name chosen a few months after the United Kingdom declared war on Germany in 1939. Production continued after the war and the Anglia was slowly morphed into a cool little car — particularly good looking are 105E models (1959-1968). Find this 1967 Ford Anglia Estate with Toyota Twin-Cam Swap here on eBay bidding for $1,575 reserve-not-met with 5 days to go located in Los Angeles, CA.
This Anglia was originally born in the UK, but was imported 5 years ago by the current seller and now sits in a redzone somewhere in the greater Los Angeles area. It features a variety of upgrades from when it was restored/modified 10 years ago, and it looks very nice in the photos.
