Comfortable - Well Built and strong. (Bought in 1963)

This is the first car I owned at the age of 17. It was immaculate and very quiet running.
They had a split windscreen, and turn signals were illuminated yellow arms that came out on the door pillars. It had column gear change, plus real leather seats and wood veneer all round. It also has a very strong chassis, which you don't see today.
The second one I owned was an ex Met Police car. If only at 17 years of age, I would have had the forethought of trying to preserve them. Are well they were a joy to own and great memories.
