News: When did you last see - a Ford Consul "Base"

It would be fair to say that Dan Godley is a dyed in the wool Ford Granada enthusiast. ‘After I passed my driving test in 1994 I bought a 2-Litre for £40’.

News: WHEN DID YOU LAST SEE – A BOND 875?

Some cars seemed destined to become remembered as only a “missing link” between two popular models, yet the 875 deserves a better fate.

News: MEET THE OWNER – DOUG MOODY AND HIS FORD CORTINA “WOODY” ESTATE

Doug Moody is the proud owner of a very fine collection of Consul Cortina Mk. Is – including a version that is widely remembered, despite it enjoying a limited production run.

News: MEET THE OWNER – ANDREW JONES TURTON AND HIS TRIUMPH TOLEDO

‘I always get the “nice Dolomite mate” - I can’t help but put them right by telling them it’s a Toledo’. Andrew Jones Turton‘s 1973 example is now an unusual sight, but in their heyday, they were the Triumph that you were most likely to encounter outside of the Co-op.

Some vehicles take on an almost mythical quality; such is their rarity; the Morris-badged Metro Van, the basic-specification Austin A110 Westminster and, of course, the Brabham Viva HB.

News: DO YOU REMEMBER – THE VAUXHALL VENTORA FE?

Forty-five years ago, I regarded the FE-Series Ventora as one of the most handsome cars you were likely to encounter in the not very mean streets of Fareham. The vaguely Pontiac-style lines, the quad headlamps, the vinyl roof and the sound of that 3.3-litre straight-six engine denoted a car of modest but genuine distinction.

In the 1960s the British Motor Corporation was renowned – or notorious, depending on your point of view – for its “badge-engineering”. This would occasionally result in some very short-lived modes, such as the Morris 1800 Mk. I, which debuted in 1966 and lasted only until the launch of the Mk. II “Landcrab” in 1968.
