Superb estate car

Actually bought about 1976 the biggest car I had owned at the time and it suited our young family perfectly, no problem chucking prams and pushchairs in the back, even carried 4' x 8' plywood wallboards inside the massive boot when I was doing up our house. We often went up to visit friends in Fleetwood and the kids would be laid on blankets fast asleep on the floor in the back for the motorway drive home where we just lifted them straight up to bed when we reached home. During my ownership I repainted it twice with coach paint, fitted a glass sunroof and a second hand brake servo from a scrap yard to improve stopping, it sure did. The rust bug killed it off, typical of all cars of the era but it was magnificent, spacious, comfortable and reliable, very fond memories
