Now that is cool.  Needs a sympathetic restoration and to be driven.

Is that the same as an Anglia?

In reply to 914Driver :

No. Different models, although many shared parts and similar in size. I think Anglias were two doors.Later , the Prefect and Anglia names were really just different trim levels on the 100E series cars.

In one picture it looks like the dash is reversed. It's left-hand drive but the gauges are on the right side in one of the pictures.

Very cool. A bit spendy for what it is, but probably pretty rare to find in this condition.

Most of them seems to be have been turned into tubbed out drag cars. Probably in the 60s or 70s, I dont know.
