If they were going for looks, then a S3 E-type was the wrong choice!

A Lada Riva (or similar) would be more appropriate.

C167WDD was registered as a 'Shanghai Automobile'. It was manufactured in 1985, taxed in Jan 1986 and the tax was due Jan 1987. So that went well then.

 

Could it be the first SAIC car registered in the UK? Followed by several thousand MG's.

Base spec Cortina taxi rank in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis.
Not sure if poor pic quality is due to cam operation fault or natural lighting or weather. Probably all.
1600L spec for the win.

Are you sure that's a Mex ? The wheels look like Cortina ones and I'm not sure it's a type 49 shell, although it's difficult to work out if the front wing lips are bigger or not, the quarter bumpers point to a Sport or Mexico but it was and is always easy to put van back bumpers on the front.
My eyesight isn't good enough to see the reg, that might make things clearer.

^ I know what you mean about the slightly-less-dished wheels. It has Mex wings for deff, with side repeater lamps. Thought about a Sport too which had Mex wings and quarters as std and Cortina wheels, but it doesn't have the original Sport wing decals. I think it's M-reg 73/4.
Maybe a Sport upgraded now with Mex 1600GT side badges?
Or an upgraded 1300L.
Who knows?

Still no excuse for putting a leaper on it tho.

Locomotors in the UK was contracted to develop the pickup version. Shanghai was replacing the saloon with an Audi clone and wanted more mileage out of the old motor.  How and why Locomotors was chosen I don't know. Shipped back to China I believe.
