This little bastard jumped right off eBay and attacked us! With a nose high stance, straight front axle, tunnel rammed small block, and wheelbase that seems a hair shorter than the average go kart it would make perfect daily transportation. When most people think of an Anglia gasser they are thinking of the older style from the 1940s, not this stylish little number from the Eisenhower era.
While the little 355ci, iron headed Chevy engine is not making four digit power, the entire car only weighs about four digits, so the thing must really haul the mail. Handling in virtually any situation other than a straight line will be about as predictable as the stock market, but you’re not buying this car for autocross glory. You’re buying it because it will be the only one you see at a car show or cruise night ever, end of story.
The car is 100% steel and is fully streetable with lights, blinkers, and all necessary safety equipment. Inside there is a four point roll bar to protect you and the passenger, who we hope is a small person or you’ll look like a couple of trained bears wedged into the thing!
If we had the scratch, we’d buy this car in a heartbeat. The front end would come down a few inches, but other than that, not much would change!
