My wife's Father had one of these, nick named the "aircraft carrier" due to size and wallowing, slow driving characteristics. Thank goodness these are no more.
Very nice Jukka

A freind's father had one of these and I had a lift in it on occasion. It was the first time I'd seen a rev counter in a car Smile

A brave and striking design: and with almost as much carrying capacity as an aircraft carrier... My father-in-law had the successor, an Austin Ambassador, with the largest rear hatch I think I've ever seen (the Princess had a conventional boot). I remember borrowing it to tow a trailer once: it was perfectly capable of hustling along, even with a chest freezer behind it.

Hydragas suspension gave a very civilised ride for passengers - remember, Ford were only just graduating from cart springs at the time!
