1965 Monte

Ford Anglia 105E - 1965 Monte Carlo Rally


The Monte Carlo Rally of 1965 saw cars starting from the following cities. Warsaw, Stockholm, Minsk, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Lisbon, Athens and Monte Carlo.

There were no "Works" Ford Anglia's competing in the Rally, but there were two privateer cars. One Ford Anglia belonging to Sydney Allard who campaigned an Allardette again this year, and a second Ford Anglia being driven by William Robson. Both Anglia's started from London and both failed to finish the Rally.

Of the 237 competitors that started out for Monte Carlo only 35 actually finished the Rally. Heavy snow throughout Europe was the main cause for so many cars failing to finish.

The Rally was ultimately won by Timo Makinen / Paul Easter in a Mini Cooper S (Car No 52)
The Coupe des Dames (Ladies Cup) was won by Pat Moss-Carlsson / Elizbeth Nyström in a Saab 96 - Reg No PA12570 (Car No 49), who finished 3rd overall in the Rally.
