I bet..... bow

They were rocking horse poo back in the early 80's - let alone 30 odd years later. I only ever saw one of them back then.

Love your car 1962, it’s the only Mk1 I’d consider changing mine for.

AVO ND 2018

That takes me back...... and makes me feel old grumpy

As, the first AVO OC ND I attended was the 2nd one, back in 1982.

I learnt to drive in a Mk1 1100L, and used to dream about owning something like that smile

A guy went into a RS dealer, late 73 is, and test drove a Mex, liked it, but after test drive, pointed at a new Purple Velvet 1300E in the showroom and said, can I have looking like that?
Dealer phoned Special Build direct, and they said yes, and AVO built his Mex, with Custom Pack (vinyl roof, RS seats, wood dash & console, etc) but in Purple Velvet, and with 1300E style over-rider bumpers as well IIRC. It looked exactly like a 1300E two-door but with Mexico badges, etc. The car turned up at a AVO National Day back in the mid 80's, guy who owned, I think bought it of the original owner, thus knowing the full story of how it came about. Car was mint. Again, I will photo's of it somewhere in a box laugh
I presume (hope) it's still around, being such a unique car.


i think i have seen this car
