    Wow - that takes me back. I remember getting the brochure for one of those when they first came out when my dad was buying an escort. I thought they were AMAZING until the Cosworth came out. That one looks mint considering the rust-buckets most must have become.

    Rubbish.

    Those white slacks and espadrilles are 100% genuine.

    Its a Farina design- likely an A 55 Austin Cambridge/Morris Oxford /Wolsey 15/60***/ Riley 4

    BMC Farina saloon of some variety. There were lots of badge-engineered versions, but from the tail-lights I'm calling series 6 Morris Oxford. I wouldn't bet the farm on it, though..

    Cheers,

    I learnt to drive in a MG Magnette one of the versions of this Farina body, it used to rear wheel drift around bends at speed rather well, after a few pints in the pub on a Saturday night.

    It doesn't have the larger tail fins of an A55 Mark II or a 15/60 so I'd concur with the suggestion of a Series VI Morris Oxford or possibly a Wolseley 16/60.

    Judging by the rather neglected condition, there is a very strong likelihood that it will end up on the banger racing track as all varieties of Farina have been a favourite there since the 1970s and they remain very well represented at classic banger events.

    So the lucky ones look like this:

    And the unlucky ones end up like this:

    Followed by this in a well respected showroom in Ripley, Surrey. IMG_2039.JPG

    Such a shame they couldn't be bothered to clean the tyres - I would have expected better to be honest! IMG_2042.JPG

    Spotted one of those new sporty Hyundai i30’s on the M1 this morning

    It actually looked real nice, every detail. Just needs de-badging though as I couldn’t get over the brand badge

    Saw this at Glastonbury but the owner was never there to discuss when I happened to walk past. (It's my 124 behind it btw.) It had Overlander 2 writ large on the back:
