This Ford Anglia is a genuine Post Office Telephones van, once the property of Ken Bennett, a founder member of the Morris Commercial Club. It was restored and resprayed back to its original green livery from red circa the late 1990s by Ken and comes with some GPO paraphernalia. Only nine other GPO Anglia vans are known to survive, according to the vendor. It was registered in December 1966 and is showing 94,417 miles on its odometer. Its last MoT expired in July 2008 after being tested the year before at an indicated 94,127 miles. However, as an historic vehicle, the Anglia is now MoT-exempt. The van isn't currently running. 

Paperwork includes the V5C (which suggests the van has been upgraded with a 1498cc engine instead of the standard 997cc or 1198cc unit), owner's handbook, service data book, schedule of maximum repair charges, some publicity shots of GPO Anglias, invoices, MoT certificates, old tax discs, previous V5C/V5/log book info and club literature.
