1957 Ford Anglia panel pro street
Just made napas car of the month.
It still turns heads after all these years.
Built in the 90sby Bob Acosta with thehelp of friend and hot rod builderBob Ogden.
Bob Acocta was famous for his paint work on the "California Star".
The Worlds Most Beautiful Roadster at the Oakland Roadster Show in the eary 80s.
The first time Bob customized this Anglia was in 1959.
He jacked it up and it was painted red. He called it "Overland Express".
In this form Bob showed and raced it all over then in 1969 he sold it.
After many years and many custom cars later Bob was informed that the Anglia was setting with most of the trick parts missing.
Bob was able to get the car back and proceeded to rebuild it from the gound up.
For health resons Bob had the help of long time friend and felow builder Bob Ogden.
The two of them brought the Anglia to a point that Bob Acocta could finish building and painting it.
At the end the Anglia was reborn as the "Midnight Express".
Bob showed the car all over california with great success and to this day the car gathers attention.
The Anglia has a chevy 383ci stroker, a TH400 automatic and a ford 8" narrowed rearend.
Custom built chassis and full roll cage.
Custom headers and 3" exhust.
The car runs well and is fully street legal.
The car has some flaws in it from the years. I have done my best to show them in the pics.
The car is all set to turn the key and hit the road with the new owner.
You don't need to do anything to enjoy this piece of American hot rod history built by an American hot rodlegend.
The car is in southern Oregon and is for sale locally.
I amlisting it for the owner andall the info came from them.
If you have any questions email me and I will do my best to answer them.
I have added some youtube links of the car.
Thanks for looking and happy bidding.
