Typical Anglia Torino

The Ford Anglia 105E Torino was a car derived from the Ford Anglia 105E by the Italian arm of
Ford during 1964 and 1965.

Although the Ford Anglia 105E was a good seller in Italy; it was Italy's best selling import in 1960 and 1961; the raked rear window and fins soon becaome unfashionable and demand for the car dropped alarmingly. The president of Ford Italiana was convinced that the raked rear window had to go and so a new design was requested.

The Ford Anglia 105E Torino used the chassis, doors, windscreen and all the mechanical parts of the Anglia 105E Saloon, but the outer body was of an all new design.

This new design was drawn up by Michelotti and built by Officina Stampaggi Industriala (O.S.I)

The Italian design did away with the protruding headlights, rear wings and sloping rear screen (All the attributes that made the Anglia unique and desirable) and replaced them with a more "European" influenced body.

In reality the car was made to resemble a small, rather bland boxy saloon, which was somewhat limited by the use of the narrow Ford Anglia chassis.

Torino's were sold either with the standard 997cc engine and carburettor or as the Torino S which also had the 997cc engine, but this time sporting a downdraught dual-choke Weber 28/36DCD carburettor and a four branch tubular exhaust manifold.

The Italians were hoping to sell the car around Europe as an alternative to the standard Ford Anglia 105E saloon, but their attempts to export the car to other European Countries never really got off the ground, although it was sold in Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg.

Due to this, the Italians reputation for poor build quality and other problems that plagued the car, sales were never what Ford had hoped for. Production continued until the end of 1967 with the Torino also being eventually assembed by Ford of Belgium.

The number of Torino's sold in Italy was 1965 : 2847, in 1966 : 4220, in 1967 : 2032,
in 1968 : 897 and in 1969 only 11.

The total number of Ford Anglia 105E Torino's built is unknown, but the number sold in Italy was 10,007

This makes the Ford Anglia 105E Torino quite a rare variant of the Anglia family.
