VANGUARDS 1/43 FORD ANGLIA 105E - 1959 RAC RALLY, LADIES TROPHY WINNER, ANNE HALL AND PATSY BURT

 The 1959 RAC rally was the first year of Jack Kemsley’s time in charge. He increased the emphasis on special stages and moved the date to November, which resulted in a tougher event badly affected by blizzard conditions in Scotland. Although famously won by Burgess/Croft-Pearson Ford Zephyr Mk2, the event also marked the international rally debut of Ford’s Anglia 105E. Of the four Anglia’s entered, the highest placed, was the car modelled here, in which Ann Hall and Patsy Burt won the Ladies Prize and finished 20th overall, a remarkable performance for a car of only 997cc.  Shop here
