Last week I noted that both Genevieve and the Spyker from the 1953 movie were deemed ineligible for the London to Brighton run. I asked why? Both of them were dated as 1905 models and so were considered to be too “young” as the run that year was for cars built before 1905.
So to this week. Who remembers the Leyland P76? A large car made in Australia and released at the wrong time. A 4.4 liter V8 engine was not popular as the country was going through a petrol crisis. Strikes by suppliers meant a backlog and eventually Leyland killed their own child. So, for this week, where did the hub caps come from on the first P76 used in promotional photography?
