The English Ford are the second-largest carmaker in th country, building 600,000 passenger cars and commercial vehicles each year. The smallest model of their extensive range is the offered since 1959 Ford Anglia with 1.0 or 1.2 liter engine. The best-selling type, however, is the Cortina, of which around 243,000 were produced in 1966. A more upmarket model is the Ford Corsair with a V4 engine. V6 engines are used in the top-of-the-range, large models Zephyr and Zodiac.
Ford Anglia 105E Torino was introduced by the Italian arm of Ford in 1965 with the outer body designed by Michelotti and built by Officina Stampaggi Industriala (O.S.I). The car was also sold in the Benelux. The number of Ford Anglia 105E Torino's built is unknown, but approximately 10,007 were sold in Italy.

Anglia Torino by OSI - discontinued

Best sellers don't sell best without a reason, and the thick-on-the-ground Anglia's worldwide popularity is well earned. Again no change this year. Adherence to a front engine, rear-wheel drive and a live back axle is proof that the great mass of car buyers don't necessarily demand far-out design so long as you give them all-round serviceability of the highest order, plus running economy. Wide permutations on the basic theme are rung-standard and de luxe saloons, ditto estate cars, choice of 1-litre or 1200 c.c. engines.

By adapting two features of their V4 Corsair engine-crossflow porting and dished-in-the-piston combustion chambers - to the four-in-line Cortina unit, Ford have made substantial gains in power output while sacrificing nothing in m.p.g. Power goes up by about 10 per cent, zero-to-sixty time is cut by three seconds. These figures apply to the new 1300 c.c, engine, but a 1600 version is correspondingly sprightlier. Cortina Super now shares the GT's remote-control shift lever. Regulation of the Aeroflow ventilation system has been made easier and more precise.
Cortina-Lotus is the much more refined successor to yesteryear's Lotus Cortina - note that the model name, significantly, bas been put into reverse - now built by Ford instead of Lotus and with the old tendency to temperament eradicated. The Ford-based, Lotus-designed engine is in the hotter of the two forms available, yet is remarkably quiet and flexible. Zero-to-100 acceleration in less than 19 secs. is brilliant for a sub-1600 c.c. family saloon. Body is a two-door without the option. Sole recognition feature is now a pair of distinctively coloured badges. Servicing intervals are short at 2500 miles.
New derivative of the Cortina GT bristles with performance and luxury features. Standard points include reclining bucket seats, special wheels with extra wide rims, console housing the gear lever, an oddments locker and topped by an arm-rest, full carpeting, lavish sound insulation, dual-tone horns cigar lighter, spare wheel cover, twin-driving lamps, automatic reversing lamps, leather-covered aluminium steering wheel, etc. Lowered suspension is Cortina-Lotus pattern. Dished piston engine's output is up to 92 b.h.p. Top speed to 95 m.p.h. 0-60 acceleration time down to 12 seconds.

The elegant Corsair range gives a choice of four models - the basic 1663 c.c. de luxe saloon and three 2-litre variants in saloon and estate car forms. The 2000E's suffix letter denotes Executive and gives the clue to its lavish specification. The 'E' replaced the original GT Corsair and its at Earls Court for the first time. Common to all is a compact V4 engine with crossflow cylinder heads and Heron type combustion chambers formed in the piston crowns. The nimble Weber-carburetted 2000E  will do the standing quarter-mile in just over 18 secs.
