I know this doesn't match what's already been said.
Thank you Peter. I would be more inclined to take the word of someone who worked for them! I think the '105E Anglia' mention comes from one of the Robson books.

I have a customer restoring the 66 Broadspeed Anglia . . . . it still has all its original rear suspension on it . . . It clearly worked so I'd be surprised if the early Escorts were any much, if at all, different.

Id agree.....

I can still remember watching- and hearing- the 997cc Broadspeed Anglias at Snetterton. The engine note was more a scream than anything else!

On the subject of rear suspension, we finally have Tornado parts made which won't fall to bits and are the same both sides!

As usual tenths turns my photos upside down!

Time wise yes. Cost wise, not so, although I have sold 3 other sets, which helps.

To be honest, the cars useless for anything other than pottering without a proper upgrade, so 'relatively' cheap, and certainly cheaper than repairing a car if the worst happened.

Somewhat unfashionably, we haven't made everything from titanium and copied the geometry from a dynamic 3d computer model so it'll still be slower than a 'modern' lotus elite, for example.
