Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Longbridge Classics To Be Proud Of -

The Al­le­gro and its posh Vanden Plas vari­ant were 1970s good and bad summed up in au­to­mo­tive form. But the cars ac­tu­ally had a lot to of­fer. The in­fa­mous ‘Quar­tic’ wheel only lasted two years, from 19731974

The shape has aged well, it rusted less than many con­tem­po­raries, and there were plenty of spec­i­fi­ca­tions to choose from. Some 642,000 were pro­duced, and pre­sum­ably even sold, over 10 years. The Al­le­gro kept the Long­bridge pro­duc­tion lines busy and pro­vided a lot of work in war­ranty claims. Can you call all that a com­plete fail­ure.
