Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Driving -

This is an en­joy­able and hugely prac­ti­cal car, to­tally evoca­tive of its era and su­per-rare. This car’s colour and many chrome bits add yet more nos­tal­gia to the pile, too. Apart from some wooden parts, there’s noth­ing par­tic­u­larly hid­den or com­plex about this car and the in­te­rior is wel­com­ing, with its big, bouncy seats and am­ple space. Its am­ple power and a good gearchange make it fun to drive in its own way, but re­mem­ber The Au­to­car’s pe­riod sug­ges­tion that it would ap­peal to a busi­ness­man ‘who does not place rapid ac­cel­er­a­tion and high­speed han­dling among a car’s most de­sir­able char­ac­ter­is­tics.’

It’s no high-speed cruiser, then, but its ut­terly love­able char­ac­ter more than makes up for it.
