Oakland Street Sighting - 1964 Ford Anglia 105E Deluxe
photographed it long before I did, and estimated it as a 1964 model. All years of the 105E were available in Standard or Deluxe trims, the former a bare-bones car while the latter, seen here, featured more decoration and standard equipment such as pop-out rear quarter windows for ventilation. The 105E barely changed at all visually, though late 1965 models received a revised grille. This car apparently belongs to the Cortina collector, a bit of an odd sock among his four other Cortinas. I'm bummed that the late-afternoon-dappled-shade lighting was so poor and the car was parked so close to the red Cortina sedan that I couldn't get a front shot. I kind of like these little cars and I'm happy to have found one, even if my pictures are terrible. Maybe I'll get lucky and be able to re-shoot it someday.
