On a typical British farm the farmer tends his cattle while the horses wonder whether the Ford Anglia's 36bhp is any match for them. Launched in 1953 the Ford Anglia 100E offered the innovations of integral construction and MacPherson strut suspension. An existing side-valve engine remained unchanged in size but it enjoyed significant improvements to power and smooth running.
