British Motor Museums

12th October 2018

Would you give away a 1968 Anglia Super in mint condition? Well, that is what Chris and Michael Gates have just done.

Just 32,000 miles on the clock and in fantastic condition the car has been in their family since new. Originally owned by Chris’s Grandmother it now graces Time Road in the British Motor Museum at Gaydon.

The Anglia Super, with its 1198 cc engine, entered the Ford range in 1962. The car included two tone paint with a side stripe and roof panel in the contrasting colour. Other extras were full wheel trims, uprated interior trim, new front grille and badges.

This model was sought after and remained in production until the “spatula” Escort came from Ford in 1967.

Stephen Laing, Museum Curator, commented, “We would like to thank Chris and Michael Gates for this very kind donation which guarantees the cars future and makes it available for everyone to enjoy.”

The British Motor Museum are frequently offered items of all shapes and sizes. However not every car offered to the Museum is accepted, especially if it’s something similar or a duplicate. The Museum has strict procedures about what it can accept to ensure the car is right for the collection and there is adequate space for it.
