What do I do next?

Recommended Posts

So some of you may have seen ive purchased an Anglia 105e that’s had a bit of work done back in the 60s 70s

Here are a couple of pics from then

and this is is how it is now

As you can see it’s definitely from back in the day lol with Magard dash and pinstriping but I quite like it

fitted with discs on the front and some antitramp bars on the leafs on the rear, it’s got a tuned 1500gt engine which I’ll strip to see what’s been done and hopefully find some nice bits internally 

but the big question is what do I do with it?

put carlos fandango wide wheels on, drive it through a farm gate knocking the wheels off, sliding into a hay barn, then light up a cigar

failing that ask Colin

I’m on the search for some decent banded steels and I’ve possibly got some JAP mag wheels coming

Anglia arrived today 

it’s going to need some jacking points and rear inner sill work but generally good apart from that! Top plates have been welded but generally good as are chassis legs, It has steel bubble arches and the roof chop has been done well 

I’m going to remove the head tomorrow to see what (if any) has been done internally, what end is a xflow cam marked is it the flywheel end?

The cams are marked generally on the back end.

Stripped the vinyl off the roof today and was thinking I was going to uncover alll sorts of horrors but just 1 corner that needs some welding, also put a battery on checked the oil and very clean spun it over but no spark cleaned the points and still nothing so ordered some new points and condenser which I need to pick up tomorrow 

looked underneath and needs both front jacking points and some inner sill repairs, floors are good, once I’ve got it running think I’ll pull the running gear off and put it on the rotisserie 

maybe alan Mann or broadspeed colours what do you think? Opinions welcomed

Id paint it orange with  black pinstripe.

A homage to the original build.

Im guessing (and it is a guess) that a bubble arched Alan Mann painted Anglia has been done before.

 

Yours looks like a one off.

Changed the points today and after finding several gremlins in that neat bit of wiring it has a least coughed and popped out of the exhaust and carb when spinning over and oil is coming out of the rockers so that’s also a good sign, now that I’ve got that far I might just pull the running gear off and get it on the rotisserie as I've priced up inner/centre/outer sill repair panels as well as front jacking point and rear spring hanger/jacking point so looks like I’ve persuaded myself to rebuild it! Not that I haven’t got enough of my own already to do

Cheers but just bought a Aldon dizzy on eBay 

will buy a an A3 cam and fit some 40 dcoes when I rebuild it with a 11.5 compression with the flowed head 

all those guys that build stuff with 10.5 isn’t any good 

the last pic shows a lip on the arch which I’m going to remove
