FORD ANGLIA E494A. 1952 – 3 OWNERS FROM NEW!
Lovely 1952 Ford Anglia E494A. “Buttercup”.The V5 confirms just three owners from new . We sold this car nearly 4 years ago and were very keen to buy it back. Unfortunately the owner has misplaced the original buff log book which he is trying to find. This had only 2 owners on it . The gentleman who restored the car ,who is more than qualified took upon a full bare metal restoration some 11 years ago and the paint and bodywork are excellent to this day, with just the odd chip where the bonnet hinges . Painted in a really nice Buttercup Cream colour. I have recently color co-ordinated the wheel trims and refurbed both bumpers. The interior was treated to the same level of workmanship. New Red wool carpets, new headlining, all trim recovered in new Red leather. Boot space is very clean and tidy and houses the original jack and wheel brace.
Again the interior still feels new 11 years on .
Mechanically Buttercup is superb. As a qualified motor engineer a full engine rebuild was carried out ,full gearbox rebuild , brake system, electrics etc etc. The car now is running 12 volt system and has an alternator instead of the old fashioned dynamo. Underneath and engine bay are very clean indeed.
On the road the car handles ,goes and stops just as it should .
To summarise this 3 owner from new is excellent both mechanically and cosmetically. Everything works including the semaphores. With its original bakelite dash and near new interior it’s a great value for money classic, that would drive anywhere and be admired wherever it went. Only used a couple of times in last 3.5 years due to covid restrictions , a few shows under the belt but thats about it . However the car was stored in a new clean unit and started and moved regularly. it is on the button to start.
