1968 ADVERT - ROVER P6 2000

 

Smug 60's advertising kind of sums up the era really... and the British  manufacturers attitude generally.

Ad associates Rover with a junk yard - and says  the car is better than this lot... Of course by '68 the P6 had been in production 5 years so a bit of an old crock by then anyway. The competition  was catching up...

Meanwhile at Ford they were doing this aspirational  advertising  and of course  it worked. Even the Queen got a Granada.

Tell me that pretty building on the right wasn't flattened...

I don't know Halifax that well so I couldn't tell you. Here's a couple of other Hfx ones (pinched from here) - both of Cow Green

Minx(?) vs Consul(?) imminent RTA centre bottom?
Note brave pedestrians risking life and limb to use the zebra (and two of Halifax's finest bobbies on hand to write up both RTAs.

Few years later, town planners have spent £££s installing a subterranean pissoir (sorry, pedestrian underpass)  to reduce accidents. Smell of urine is so bad that Mr Cloth Cap there in the centre island chancing it above ground. Be ironic if the road roller got him.......
(Bagsies the P6 please)

WTF is the Hillman doing?

Taking advantage of the Consul having parked up next to the lovely round grassy picnic area. 

Note also the life size tin soldier in front of the lorry on the left, also heading for the new fangled round roadside picnic area thing.

There is really a lot going on in that photo.

The Hillman V Ford.

The "soldier" in front of the gully cleaning lorry.😉

The lorry in the distance which seems to have a huge crane jib and a load of poles overhanging the rear.

The road layout is abysmal, where the bus is approaching.

Two policemen stand over to the left in front of the shop.

The direction sign, at the bottom right, does not match the road layout.

Aye - it's Grim Up North...Halifax is a great place though. Well worth a visit.

Formerly home to Woodall Nicholson...

Norland is a village  near Halifax...

Now I wouldn't stick two fingers up at that (a joke for our younger viewers).

There's some massive negative camber on that rear wheel......
