Leyland Mini Clubman: Clubman style Mini from the 1970’s. Not as stylish as the original Mini’s, but had more room under the bonnet and is still a great little car. This one has the front wheel disc brakes, with minilite mags. Also has a GT badge on the side suggesting this a Clubman GT specced car.
Leyland P76 Executive: Take two, deja vu! I’ve shot this lovely P76 before here but the shot wasn’t to my satisfaction. Fortunately, I’ve caught The Big P resting in a quiet side street, so I’ve taken clear shots of this very endangered species.
1976 Mini Moke: These fabulous little open top cars were based on the BMC Mini’s and made in Australia (and other parts of the world) during the 60′, 70’s and 80’s. Unfortunately, they are quite rare these days. I finally caught up with this one which has been nicely restored and fitted with comfortable Torana bucket seats.
The Leyland P76 – a full size car by Leyland Australia manufactured the early 1970?s which could compete with the big three (GMH, Ford and Chrysler). It had some advanced design features at the time but apparently suffered from quality control issues… then the whole project was suddenly axed due financial difficulties of the parent company, British Leyland.
I caught and photographed this excellent example at the local supermarket car park recently.
