Yimkin should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Special Saloons - the early cars (1965 - 1975ish!)

Can anybody remember this car?

It was a Ford 105E Anglia, which had had the body widened (!) by cutting it down the middle lengthways and new metal welded in. Oh, and it had a 3.8L Jaguar engine fitted - hence Janglia.

It was built, I think, by either Blair or Palmer of Blair & Palmer bus garages, Carlisle. I spotted it on top of one of their buses (just the shell) about 10 years ago, but wonder if it still exists.

Also interested in its contemporary history/success etc.

Thanks for any help!

IIRC the Janglia was campaigned by Mick Hill in the late 60s and early 70s before he graduated to a Capri with a Mustang (?) engine (again IIRC) These were fearsome machines, but pretty successful as I remember. Unfortunately all my mags from that period went up in a fire ....

Anyone know Gerry Marshall, because he would have raced against it ...

Sorry I may be wrong but I don't think that is the Janglia as requested by Yimkin!
Reason being when I first saw the photo, something from the back of my memory said ' That's the Tasman Anglia'.
If racing fxgt has the original photo it looks like some script above the 'Anglia' badge on the front that says Tasman. Secondly the photo of the engine is a Coventry Climax if that is the lump that went in it.
I remember it but don't recall the colour or who drove it.
The Janglia I remember as a mustard yellow driven by Mick Hill. It had loads of holes drilled in the boot lid to save weight all about 1 inch in dia and I remember seeing it race without rear window glass too!
Anybody remember a Tasman Anglia?

I think this is Dave Millington in the Brook Hire 2.3 Firenza in '75.
