Bit if a shit 'special' edition.

 

A strange one, really, in most respects an L with a few extras (like tinted glass) but with the grey bumpers at a time when even a Popular had body colour.

 

Also no rear parcel shelf, even though L and Popular Plus had one.

At £5,913 it was slightly dearer than an L, too.

It looks like this example still has its "Tricoat White" wheel trims!

No parcel shelf? It's in the pic isn't it? That spec is just Ghia but with different fabric, paint and the older bumpers but you could have a 950 fitted?

Does say my car cost £5341.75, I'm sure with scene tax it'll be back to that price soon! I have them wheel trims too but in silver.

It is in the pic, but the specifications page in the brochure says it didn't have one. Could be a misprint.

Went to the truck show over at Jacks Hill caff this morning. Plenty of interesting old lorries that will grace the truck shite thread later but there were some cars too.
