Ford did not offer an Estate version of the Ford
Anglia 105E, so Friary Motors Ltd
of Basingstoke took up the challenge.
Friary Motors Ltd conversion, launched in
June 1961, took the basic saloon model and
modified it into a hatchback calling it the
" Ford New Anglia Touring Saloon".
The conversion process was taken
over by associate company E.D Abbott Ltd of Farnham, Surrey in
1962, who renamed the car the "Ford Anglia 105E Sports Sedan".
Ford officially released their Ford
Anglia 105E Estate in September 1961
The Estate was very much welcomed by
those wanting to carry a little more luggage. The
rear seat hinged forward and its squab folded
flat to give a large flat loadspace of 35.4 cu
ft. (Which compared favourably with the 10 cu ft
of boot space in the Saloon.)
front of the car, up to the centre door pillars,
was identical to the Saloon. Behind this, blended onto
the original front end was an attractve and neat
estate car body.
Like the Saloon, the Estate
was only ever available as a two door, and was
available in Standard and De Luxe trim with added
extra's over the Saloon. The Estate also had
uprated suspension and an increased tyre size to
help with the extra weight that could be carried
in the back. Like the Saloon, the owner could also
choose between the 997cc or 1200cc engines.

eight different colours, whilst the De Luxe could
be specified from a range of eleven single
colours and seven two tone colours.
