2-door/4-door 4-seater coupés/saloon. 4-door 4-seater estate.
If the old Oxford was dull, the Marina was more so, except for perilous understeer on early, large engined models! The new BL regime's so-called Cortina-beater, with ultra grey-porridge specification and utterly conventional engineering. Two-door cars, with fastback, were coupés in theory, cramped back-seat saloons in fact. We hope no-one wants to remember these, even the practical estates, introduced end '72.
