Pinifarina Celebrates 90 Years Today

Post by surfblue63 »

Today marks the 90th anniversary of design house Pininfarina.

Not only did they design this lot for BMC/BL/Austin Rover

1956 Austin A40 Farina
1958 BMC Farina cars - Austin A55 Cambridge Mk II, MG Magnette Mk III, Morris Oxford V, Riley 4/68, Wolseley 15/60
1962 BMC ADO16
1964 BMC ADO17
1965 MGB GT
1978 Jaguar XJ6 - redesign
1995 MG F - Roof structure only

But this memorable Matchbox car, which in the end turned into some French thing.
