Towards the end o the run Ford experimentit wi twa colours o metallic paint on the Anglia, "Blue Mink" an "Venetian Gold". 250 wur made in the Blue an 500 wur made in the Gowd, sae thay are baith quite rare.

The deluxe haed a chrome side strip, chrome rear lichts, glovebox lid, sun visor an full width chrome radiator grille. The tap o the range wis the Super, which haed twin chrome side strips, contrastin coloured ruif an side flash, plusher interior trim, tohegither wi the 1198 cc ingine an a gearbox wi synchromesh on first gear.
