Pile of the Week: 1957 Ford Anglia Squire

1957 Ford Anglia Squire 4

Spotted this one over on the 24 Hours of Lemons forums, but its not getting the attention it deserves. Besides being a very rare (for the USA) 1957 British Ford Anglia wagon, it also features a full tubular header and a canvas sunroof over the entire passenger compartment! On top of all that it belonged to Mike Dormer, a genuine So. Cal./Ocean Beach eccentric, fine artist, surfer, cartoonist and creator of a 60s kids show “Shrimpenstein”.

Perhaps his most popular creation was “Hot Curl“.  Hot Curl’s story is here.
