1948 Ford Anglia
Up for sale in our Tamp Showroom is this rare, show ready 1948 Ford Anglia. This beautiful car is a must have for any car show. Brought to the consumer world in late 1939, and discontinued in late 1948, this short running car is a true rarity. Captured and restored recently, this beautiful machine was obviously loved. One look at this car and you can estimate how many hours went into this build. The engine is a very stout 454 Cubic Inch V8, with a tremendous amount of labor hours put in, along with a lot of chrome. Backing this powerhouse up and pushing it to the road, is the 700R4, 4 speed automatic transmission, made popular by hotrod builders because of its use in Corvettes, Camaros, and the Trans AM. In the rear, this car comes equipped with a Ford 9", used primarily for it's durability on the drag strip. Inside the rear end, is a set of 3.50:1 gears, which gives you a tremendous amount of power when you want it, but without drinking from your gas tank. The car comes equipped with aftermarket A/C, for the long drives from show to show, as well as several other comfort features including Ultra Leather interior, done in a beautiful white finish, with Tangelo Orange accents strewn throughout the design. Also equipped are Power Windows, to add to the luxury features. The exterior of this car, is painted in a custom two tone paint called Tangelo Orange Pearl. The paint reflects the sun in multiple directions with the idea that you can pick this car out at a show. The car sits on a set of Hoosiers on the rear, 31x16.5R15, to handle all the power from the engine. To keep to look flowing, a set of skinny tires for the front. Every detail on this car was put in place to match every angle needed to win a car show. The best part of this car, is that it is also a fantastic driving car, so you even look good on your way to the show! Options include A/C, Power Windows, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Ultra Leather Interior, Radial Tires and Aluminum/Alloy Wheels.

How was Dynamos walk on Thames River done? Since my first video on this topic found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1x76Dp4QPw was done, some have said it would be impossible to build anything under the water. Are their comments valid?
