A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that in 1961 a front engined car ran in a Grand Prix.  I asked what was it?  It was the Ferguson FF, which a few of you got correct.  However, I went on to ask what was different about the Ferguson’s braking system for the Grand Prix?  And suggested you think hard about this!  You see, the answer was that the Ferguson did have Dunlop anti-lock brakes, but they never used them in the Grand Prix – but don’t ask me why!

So to this week.  A manufacturer built an 800cc engined car which was very popular, but failed the US emission control standards and was dropped by the manufacturer in 1970, after 11,500 of these vehicles had been built.  What was it?
