The Ford Anglia was imported here as early as when I was a boy, maybe early 60's? Maybe sooner IDK but I never saw many of them. I remember the kid across the alley got one and put a straight exhaust on it. It always looked so different than the US cars on the road, except maybe my Aunt's old rambler. Boy was that a strange looking thing! But the Anglia sure brings back old memories. Don't believe I've seen one in prolly 40 years or more (in the US).
Even the Police used them in the UK in the sixities - great for chasing criminals (as long as they didn't go above 40mph)!
