Classic Ford Of The Year: the result!

Wayne's Anglia

Wayne Hankins' Zetec Anglia

The lines are closed, the votes have been counted, and we can exclusively reveal that the Classic Ford Of The Year - as voted for by you - is Wayne Hankins' Zetec-powered Anglia!

It's not hard to see why. Getting bubble arches to look right on an Anglia is a hard thing to achieve, but here it's been pulled off well, and that's down to the bodywork skills of Martin Paynter and his team at The Escort Agency. Wayne then had the shell resprayed in a variation of Performance Blue - as seen on Mondeo STs and the like - and it works a treat.

Originally, Wayne had planned to drop a hot Crossflow under the bonnet, but Martin persuaded him to go for a 2-litre Zetec, now running a Weber-Alpha throttle body kit, which doesn't look out of place thanks to the use of a pair of pancake K&N filters. Mated to a Type-9 five-speed, and an LSD-equipped standard axle, fortunately Wayne had the good sense to uprate the standard suspension to suit, calling on a Milton rack conversion and coil-overs up front, while the axle is braced with an A-frame kit. 7-inch Superlites fill those arches rather nicely.

All in all it's a perfect mix of classic looks with modern underpinnings; it's something that the old Ford scene is currently led by, and one that - thanks to inspiring cars like Wayne's - will remain popular for years to come.

Congratulations to Wayne, and if you missed the original feature, you can download a pdf version below.

Here's to another cracking year of feature cars!
