Ford Thames 5cwt and 7cwt (307E and 309E)
The Ford Anglia 105E is famed for its reverse-rake rear window, but the Van launched in June 1961 got a conventional box body for the rear. The Thames 307E used Anglia panels at the front, but aft of the bulkhead all panelwork differed. Doors had a different base to allow the doors to clear high kerbs. The Thames Van was available in 5cwt or 7cwt versions, with standard or low compression engines. The Thames 5cwt was very sparse, and devoid of trim or chrome. In October 1962 the 1197cc engine from the Anglia Super was an option and created the 309E Van. The name 'Thames' was dropped in March 1965 and replaced by 'Anglia' on the 307E/309E vans which ceased production in November 1967 adter 205,000 were sold. The Escort Van replaced this model and the rear doors were carried over to the newer van.
