Tough. Very comfortable with big seats. Not fast but will bend any other metal!

I bought the car in about 1962 after having a series of expensive accidents in a Sprite. The 403 was enjoying a lot of success in the Safari Rally in Africa so I reasoned.if I had heavier metal I would come out best in the crash. Actually the first impact was with a steel girder in Farnborough Staition car park....we bent the girder.! So after that I enjoyed many happy miles though there was a weekend hobby of fighting the rust in the cills and floor pan. The gear column change was a joy though a bit unusual how you had to stir it.
