European only variant in to the Anglia family
called the Sportsman.
The Sportsman was built by Ford of
Belgium, at Antwerp, was based on the 997cc
Anglia deluxe and even carried it's own Advertisements and Brochures extolling the virtues of the model
as a sporting saloon.The Ford Anglia Sportsman
was to all intents and purposes a normal Anglia
deluxe, except that the spare wheel was mounted
on the outside of the boot lid. This gave the
Anglia far more luggage space in the boot, and
was also Fords attempt to give the Anglia a
more up-market appearance by adopting the same
practice that was being used on luxury American
models at the time, with the fitment of
"Continental Style spare wheel
keeping with this more glamorous theme, large
rear chrome bumper over-riders and broad
white-wall tyres were also fitted, again
mimicking the design styles of the luxury
American market at the time.
Sportsman also came with special chrome wheel
trims, chromed exhaust, chromed
"Sportsman" badge and a screen washer

the spare wheel fitted on the outside of the boot
lid and so produced kits of varying quality for
Owners in the UK to fit to their vehicles.
wheel carrier kits were also available for the
