Austin Apache memories

Post by mab01uk »

"An Austin Apache… What? Well, apart from the fact that it was British in name only – the Austin part, that is – it was over 75% local content. Originally conceived by Farina, updated by Mitchelotti and with the engineering tweaked by Leyland Suid Afrika, it was hardly a full-fat British classic."

The Spanish version was known as the Victoria, and in De Luxe trim with twin headlights was, I think, the more attractive version.

These cars are strange mongrels though, it's very odd to see bits of 1100 mixed with bits of Triumphs mixed up in the same model . . .
