In my usual List of Craig perusing (200-2500, pre 1975, cars by owner) I came across this piece of challenge fodder.

You'd be the first to bring one!

I think those are Anglias. Not sure where the seller got 'Escort' out of that.

I'm wondering if I can ask to be banned from the for sale forums.  Way too many things I want to buy.

In reply to Stampie (FS) :

Buy an Anglia and then start watching Urchfab's "Mongrel" videos on Youtube.

According to good ol' Wikipedia, they're basically Anglia estates - so short front door, plus a horizontally split rear door. They're definitely weird.

That is the first car Ford used the Escort name on. They were never marketed as Anglias. An Anglia is a 2 door sedan, a Prefect is a 4 door sedan, and an Escort is a 2 door wagon. All the same mechanicals.
