The Ford Anglia was produced in various models from 1939 to 1967 for a total of 1,594,486. It was replaced by the Ford Escort.
The First generation of models, patriotically named first Ford Anglia, launched soon after Britain declared war on Germany in early September 1939 was a facelifted version of the Ford 7Y, a simple vehicle aimed at the cheap end of the market, with few features. Most were painted Ford black. Styling was typically late-1930s, with an upright radiator. There were standard and deluxe models, the latter having better instrumentation and, on pre-war models, running boards. Both front and rear suspensions used transverse leaf springs, and the brakes were mechanical.
The domestic market engine was the 933 cc (56.9 cu in); the 1172 cc straight-four engine from the Ford Ten was fitted for some export markets, including North America, where imports began for model year 1948.
Production, hindered by the diversion of Ford's factory to military production during the Second World War, ceased in 1948 after a total of 55,807 had been built. Initial sales in Britain actually began in early 1940. Production was suspended in early 1942, and resumed in mid-1945.
