SKU: #521 Anglia Gasser Frame Plans Category:


Without a doubt, the English Ford Anglia Gasser was the most exciting of all gas class drag racers of the 1960s. Nothing got the heart pumping stronger than to see an Anglia Gasser scream off the line with its front wheels three feet in the air and then pop them back up with every shift of the 4-speed or hydro transmission.

Discover how to build a safe, strong, economic Anglia Gasser frame.

If you’ve found an old Anglia Gasser, an original Anglia or if you’re planning to use an Anglia Gasser fiberglass body, you’ve come to the right place. Why, you ask?

Ford Anglia Gasser Material

Well, the original Ford Anglia’s were designed to be powered by a 23 horsepower engine with a total car weight of 1700 pounds. That was fine for a car with a top speed of 59 mph, that accelerated from 0-50 mph in 38.3 seconds.

Today, though, you’ll be increasing your Anglia’s horsepower by over 1000% and it’s weight by over 50%. Get ready for some problems: not only in handling and potential failure, but also your body work getting torqued and paint cracked — to say nothing of keeping doors aligned and opening. Hey, even if you’re thinking additional crossmembers and reinforcement, just remember that it’s just an addition on a thin steel frame that’s 65+ years old! After a few years of mishaps even the NHRA changed the rules to allow Anglia Gasser owners to ditch the original flimsy frame.

If you’re shopping for a newly built Anglia Gasser chassis, though, get ready to spend over $5000 for something that was designed only for the drag strip. But, there’s a better, much cheaper way.

 The Most Complete Anglia Gasser Frame Plans

This plan set shows you how to build stepped main frame rails to accommodate large rear tires, 4 important strengthening crossmembers, including a driveshaft loop for safety, as well as body mounts to go with most available fiberglass Anglia bodies.

The plans are so detailed that they show you how to taper cut the front and rear frame rails for appearance purposes, while also also showing you how you can save time if that’s not important to you. But that’s not the only option the frame plans cover. You’ll also learn:

  • How to adjust the width of the rear frame rails inward further for the most monster tires, plus recommended frame to tire sidewall clearance.
  • How to use either a convention front crossmember for a straight axle, or what to do if you choose to install Mustang II independent front suspension instead.
  • How to mount a stock steel body a better way than the original riveting to the side frame rails so that you’ll ensure properly opening and closing doors.

Each step of the way, you’ll learn what is the proper material and size to use, exact dimensions and drawings, 3D views and detailed construction tips, like how to ensure crossmembers are properly cut to avoid chassis misalignment.

If that’s not enough, the plans also include in exact detail how to lay out an assembly table just for the Anglia frame to assure its proper alignment, as well as final assembly instructions.

    The Plans for me were useful, having a clear plan at the start of a build is always a good idea.
