No oil painting, but a lovely engine and astounding flexibility. All disc brakes, an automatic option, and 120mph. Glass-fibre coachwork initially tended to shake itself to bits, so go for the 'B' specification (April 1961) to be sure of stiffer frame and body. 'C' cars (April 1963 on) have only trivial detail improvements. Price pattern capricious.
