Offered here is a competition-prepared (Appendix 'K'),1200cc, pre-crossflow 1968 Ford Anglia Super with its original and undamaged body and chassis. Over the last few years, almost everything has been refreshed including the engine, gearbox, cooling system and ignition. In 2007, the car was purchased by the Maskell family – Glen Maskell had enjoyed considerable success in a Superspeed Anglia in period – and was prepared by them for circuit racing, going about it as they used to, fitting a larger capacity engine, short-shift gearbox and finishing the car in 'Superspeed Red'.
In their ownership for seven years, and competing in events like the Historic Masters, and the Spa 6 Hours driven by Andy Maskell, it was subsequently purchased by our vendor in 2014 who then recommissioned the car completely fitting a close-ratio gearbox, Weber carburation and fully prepared to the appropriate regulations allowing it to compete in CTSRC and the HRDC TC63 series. It has a steel crank, steel rods, JE pistons, gas-flowed head, Kent A6 cam, lightweight flywheel and is blueprinted and balanced, all with Dyno time only It's fuelled from a 40-litre alloy tank through a Facet fuel pump to twin DCOE Webers on a gas flowed manifold and exhausted through an Ashley exhaust with side-exit and quick release clamp. The gearbox is FIA-compliant, short ratio with a Helix 7.5" clutch, balanced prop shaft and LSD. An FIA-compliant disc brake conversion is fitted with new calipers, braided lines, master cylinder and pedal bias adjustment. The suspension is courtesy of MacPherson struts with a big anti-roll bar at the front and adjustable Armstrong lever-arm dampers stiffened parabolic springs and (homologated) anti-tramp bars at the rear. The interior is superb and is fitted with a welded-in 6-point cage, Perspex windows, heated screen, FIA 'Lifeline' extinguisher, Sparco 2000 seat and TRS race harness.
The car has an FIA Historic Technical Passport dating from 2007 and remains in FIA-spec (apart from the ignition and trailing arm suspension-original parts with the car). It also an FIA passport relating to the model's original date of homologation in 1964, making it eligible for Pre-65 racing series.
For those sufficiently ancient to remember the days of the Broadspeed Anglias pedaled by John Fitzpatrick, Peter Proctor, Chris Craft and Anita Taylor, these little cars will always be rather nostalgic but, make no mistake, this particular example is freshly prepared, potentially competitive and ready for 2020.
