Rare car donated to British Motor Museum

Leamington Editorial 13th Oct, 2018   0

A RARE 1960s car has a new home at the British Motor Museum.

The 1968 Ford Anglia 123E Super has been donated to the Gaydon museum by Chris and Michael Gates.

The car, which only has 32,000 miles on the clock, has been in their family since new and was originally owned by Chris’s grandmother.

It is now located on the Time Road as part of the permanent collection at the museum.

Curator Stephen Laing said: “We would like to thank Chris and Michael Gates for this very kind donation which guarantees the cars future and makes it available for everyone to enjoy.

“The Anglia is one of the favourite British family cars of the 1960s so I’m sure many of our visitors will connect with it. It was probably the first car I travelled in as my parents owned an Anglia when I was born.”
