Bit of a disconnect on this part of the report "a vast improvement over the Coventry Climax Ford Anglia that you'll typically find installed."  Should have a issing 'or' in there as the Climax and Ford are two different engines.

A couple of these came to BC and raced in the Pacific Northwest in the old days and I think one is still in this area. Good alternatives to Elva Couriers etc, but very rare anywhere.
