Beauty v the Beast

CAR magazine twin road test from March 1967. Beauty: Hillman Hunter Mark 1 vs. the Beast Morris 1800 ;) Scans were provided once again by my dear friend Trigger's Retro Road Tests! Cheers Mate!

Lemon Tree

Cover of a Paykan brochure by IranNational, featuring a 1351(1972) Paykan DeLuxe.

Update: This car was featured in another advert also.

Round Australia

I'm sure the 1968 London to Sydney Marathon had something to do with this, but there is not much info about this 1968 Round Australia Rally, which was a series of six rallying events held across Australia. Photos from  Chrysler Restorers Club of Australia. These two chaps were looking very cool and confidence, weren't they?

Grand Ouch!

There are only few of these Hillman Hunter GTs have survived, well clearly this one didn't. Apparently this was a Rootes company car, imagine the paperwork after the accident!

Special thanks to Matthew Ollman for the photo.
