Very pure and very beautiful. An early example of the Hoffmeister kink that is still found on the rear pillar of today's (ugly) BMWs.

I was speaking to an owner of one of these pillarless BMW's at a car show. He was telling me the company that had sprayed his car had damaged some of the stainless trim around the windows when they removed it. He had to buy another car to get replacements as some parts are so hard to get.

Agree with you that they are a great looking car.

Small cars cover their own length very quickly, so often appear swifter than large ones!

Spotted this P1800ES heading towards the moors over the
bank holiday weekend.

Plenty of classics out and about in Devon.

Seen In Luxembourg Ville, near the palace.
So nice to see a full tonneau again.

Is this the last British car maker?
