1948 Ford Other Additional Info:

Lowered Starting Pric, No Reserv, has to go !

Here is a rare chance to own an original 60's Anglia gasse, this car has not seen the light of day in 46 year, Just recently uncovered from a decades long Hibernation in a musty old 2 car garag, The Bobbin Bear Anglia is once again awake and wants to make some passes down the quarter mile again . this car was last sold in 1974 and since then went off the rada, With the exception of a few old photos floating around the interweb, noone had seen it or knew where it wa, That is until i uncovered it early this spring . I had no intentions of selling the ca, but i have been offered a House that i really want so this once in a lifetime opportunity is going to have to be passed along to someone else as i thin the heard.
You are looking at the 1948 Anglia Known as the Bobbin Bea, this car has been a race car since the 60's mainly doing Battle at the now gone Motion Raceway of Assumption IL . The car was originally Built and driven by Jim Daniel, Jim had the car as fast as 10.40 using a hillborn injected 301 and a t10 . Jim campaigned the car as the black and gold Daniels and Farris car and then as the flag themed Big A car . It was then sold to Mr Clark of Vandailia IL who had the car painted in its current Livery . John told me he sold the car in 1974 and lost track of it after that . Jim and John are both still alive and Jim is still racing . they have plenty of stories about this car and i will put the new owner in touch with both of them.
From the looks of i, someone was had plans to put it on the street judging by some of the parts that came with i, it includes a steel grill shel, steel hoo, and an original bakelite dash . Also comes with race parts such as its Hillborn Injectio, EElco Tan, gas peda, and wheelie bars . The front suspension is all angli, but i have another heavy duty tube axle with spring and radius rods that will go with it as well . the previous owner cut out the floor pans and firewall to prep it for street duty and stopped there so the car is just a roller . there is no engine or transmission .
the cars frame was crudely boxed in the 60's with a stick welder and a grinde, yes its been 10.40 in the quarter but i woud not advise it . The old boing needs to be cut out and re done to todays standards .
The rear end is a dodge 8 3/4 with 5:38's it is still sporting its fenton gyro rears and american 5 spoke spindle mount fronts as it has had its entire racing career . It has a glass nos, blue plexi windows and glass rear fender, the Steel Body is in great shap, there has been a couple repairs done where the A pillars meet the rockers .
this is a rare opportunity to own a real 60's gasser with photos and videos to back it up . dont let it pass you by .
go to youtube and search " motion raceway 70's lil screamer wildfire " to see a video of this car making a dry hop and pass from the 70's
