Produced in Australia, this rare 1946 Ford Anglia A54A Tourer was originally purchased by a monastery in Singapore, where it was used as the main conveyance for officials traveling from Singapore into Malaysia. It was claimed that this car was the second new vehicle to be brought to Singapore after World War II. In 1979, it was eventually imported into the United States.
This car runs and is fun to drive. The motor runs really well, and it shifts nicely. But in order to start the car, you have to prime the carburetor, so it might need some choke work.
The body is in rough condition and shows plenty of body filler throughout. It has mostly wooden floors but there is some rust in the floors. And it looks like there was some welding done of the left/front frame horn. The paint is dull and peeling in many areas. The convertible top moves freely up and down.
The car appears to be nearly complete and not missing any of the vital parts. Although it is missing both side mirrors and does not have any side curtains.
A collectible car that would make a fun restoration project or driven as is.
