This Ford Anglia was the first car to be produced at Ford's new factory at Halewood, Liverpool. Before completion it was featured as the prize in a competition in the Liverpool Echo newspaper, which was won by a Mr Taylor. The car was ceremonially driven off the production line by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool on 8 March 1963 and was handed over to its new owner with a special registration 1KF. Mr Taylor could not drive and sold the car on. Fords bought the car back three years later and donated it to Liverpool City Museum, as World Museum was then known.
