4-door 4-seater saloon.

Legendary long-running 'mobile chicken-coop', still selling today to trendies and minimal motorists. Surprisingly, not officially sold in Britain until 1974, then only with 29bhp/602cc engine. Individual throughout, with air-cooled engine. Interconnected coil-spring suspension, amazing roll angles, tenacious grip, and negligible performance. One day, surely, it must be dropped, but we are told that it will go on while there's demand. A true hold-all - and it usually has to!
