Topic: 1959 Anglia build
I've been looking for a new project ever since I moved away from the big city. I've toyed with a number of ideas, but old and obscure has always been my main objective.
Today I picked up not one... but TWO Anglias from the late 50's / early 60's. The guy I bought them from has had them in his field for 16 years (they came with the house originally) and supposedly they ran 16 years ago. One decent on the outside, and NO floor pan on the inside. The other is slightly more ragged on the outside, but the floor is in pretty decent shape for sitting outside. I even got the (uber rare) blue Oregon license plates... last sticker on the plates? 1976.
Not really sure what my plan is, but a Miata drive train swap is an option.. or just get the damn thing running and throw it on the track. We have a somewhat competitive MR2, but I've been looking for something more in the spirit of crap-can racing. This should work.
This one looks better on the inside than the out
This one is a PILE on the inside...
Amazingly.. both fit on my 20' flatbed... sorta
Not sure what race I will have this done for... maybe Arse-freeze 2010? IOE here I come!
BTW.. I paid $600 for both.. which I guess is a steal for these cars.
