been the most prolific manufacturer of Anglia Saloon
The model was the first one to be introduced into their
new Vanguards range
in 1996. These models were a new departure for Lledo in
that they were
going to be produced in diecast metal to a consistant
I was (and
still am) not sure how Lledo numbered their Anglia range.
For Instance the Metropolitan Police Anglia from the
PC1002 Panda car set shows the model as VA00109
on the collectors card, but the Anglia's produced in
other sets do not always have the VA001 number.
(My thanks go to Martin Kennedy who keeps me well
informed about the Lledo Vanguards range.)

In 1999 the
Lledo Company went into Recievership and the Vanguards
(as well as
the Days Gone Range) were bought by Corgi. They have
decided to keep the Vanguards
name and have started to release more Anglia Models.
These have been "upgraded" to
include jewelled headlights and fine metal wiper blades.
Long may they keep producing them.
