British & European Car Day 2019...(3).

Nearest the camera, a 1987 version of Citroen's remarkable 2CV, which was built from 1948 to 1990.
In the background is a Dyane, which was Citroen's attempt to modernise the 2CV. These had a shorter lifespan, only being built between 1967 and 1983.

1965 Ford Cortina Estate looks fairly original, apart from the super wide wheels.

Rover P6B in Mexican Brown.

BMW Isetta with its front entry door.

Jaguar Mk VII looks like it may be freshly painted.

A quintet of Traction-Avants.

Citroen BX 19.
This one is a 1908cc petrol version.

1937 Vauxhall DX and from the same stable a Bedford, built some 42 years later.

1951 Austin A40, once a very common car.

Series V Sunbeam Rapier next to an earlier convertible version,
 identifiable by its slightly different frontal treatment and its 15 inch wheels.

Two examples of the Austin Healey 3000.

Two examples of the Ford Popular.
One standard and one significantly modified !

Triumph's GT6 (nearest the camera) was a six cylinder development of the Spitfire, which was sold here in reasonable numbers.
The Lotus Elan, however was always a rare car in NZ.

This mid sized saloon from BMC was built in Wolseley and MG forms.
This one is a Wolseley 4/44. Engine was 1250cc with a column change 4 speed.
