This 1971 model still sported suicide doors at a time when the 500 supermini had long done away with them. Giardinieras from 1966 onwards were built by partner company, Autobianchi hence the badge on the front of the car.”

Jaguar 3.4: “Initially I thought this was a Jaguar Mk 2 but some research indicates that it is the oft-called Mark 1 or Jaguar 3.4 (a 2.4L model was also available).

Introduction of the Mk 2 Polo was the beginning of the end for VW’s small the saloon, the Derby, which was renamed the Polo ‘Classic’.”
