You will experience that the Austin A30 was the first car in which the famous BMC A-series engine was fitted. This was followed by the Morris Minor, Austin A35, Austin-Healey Sprite, MG Midget, the various Mini versions and of course the ADO 16 model series ... Many millions of cars got that engine. From 1951 to 2000 ...

The British tuner Alexander Engineering delivered for the Hillman Minx then the Singer Gazelle Series I to VI that were built from 1956 to 1967, a much improved cylinder head with two SU carburetors.

The Sunbeam Alpine was built from 1959 to 1968. What is special is that such an Alpine subcutaneous is not (s) different from a somewhat modified platform of a Hillman Husky van ...

Shortly before the introduction of the Jaguar XKE Series III, you know the model with the V12 engine, the Edelkoetsenfabrikant intended to call that model Jaguar XKF. One dealer had already heard about this in the corridors and advertised with the upcoming F-type.
