Escort Elba camper entered in 1970 World Cup London to Mexico.

Didn't finish.  Am not sure if they actually slept in it.  Handy for a cup of tea or a quick fry-up though. (Note pop-up roof and picnic basket. The one piece rear door is hinged at the bottom to make an extended bed platform, covered by a fold-out tent thing). Get the banjo out round a camp fire, etc. 

This pic shows maybe another Elba following on. London support van?  Publicity vehicle? Lost tourist?  Don't know.

Different world these days. No longer any parking on Westminster Bridge - and a lot less private cars because of the C-charge - now mostly buses, black taxis and Ubers. Cycle lanes on both sides of the bridge too. On the right hand side there are bus stops and all the guard railings are gone and there is a pelican crossing. Building on the right the former home of the Greater London Council now a hotel. Parliament at the back was stone-cleaned after this was taken so now a much lighter colour too. And to the right of Big Ben there are new parliamentary offices - Portcullis House.

VX 4/90.  

2.0 ohc slant 4, my uncle had a bottle-green H-reg one around 1973/4. Really great body style which suits rostyle wheels. Black vinyl interior which had a distinctive smell on hot summer days, sold because it only did about 21mpg if I remember correctly. It also did 100mph though. Replaced by a Mk1 Granada 2500 estate to carry his drum kit. Hmmmmm.

Why pitch your tent on the ground like everyone else when you could pitch it precariously on a board on the roofrack right on top of your car? 

Make going for a piss during the night an adventure, part of your holiday memories you can look back on and cherish.  You know it makes sense Rodney. And you won't be pestered by rabbits at 6 a.m.  Asking the time.

Kits 4 pounds 3 shillings and sixpence. Includes ladder but does not include tent or bird. Or car.

Another Morris innovation before it's time - the 'enormous grille facelift' (c) the 1950's. It's a shame it wasn't patented as Audi et al would be bankrupted by now. Or they would have kept with smaller less awful grilles.
