1958 Ford Anglia Review
Fun Car For It;s Time. — Fun little car, when little was not good. The battery was almost bigger than its 4 cylinder flat head. The 3 on the floor shifter would have been right at home in a semi tractor, almost 3' tall. The gas tank didn't have a vent, so when a gas station attendant opened it the bang of tank expanding scared an unknowing attendant into the next county. Styling was little box on slightly larger box. the performance got you there and back with out using much gas.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: I doubt that you could find one today.
Cons: If you ever had a wreck in it you wouldn't need to buy a coffin, just bury the whole thing.
