A cou­ple of com­ments on the su­perb pic­ture of The Mall in 1960 in the September is­sue. The ve­hi­cle be­hind the Con­sul MKII is not a Mor­ris Ten, but its arch ri­val, the Austin Ten Cam­bridge sa­loon. Look at the up­right pro­file, shape of the wings and doors hung on the cen­tre pil­lar. And the car cap­tioned as an Alvis 12/70 is a Ri­ley of 1937-38 vin­tage. Christo­pher Hud­son, by email Mar­ion New (Your Cars, September 2017) may be in­ter­ested to know that her Sun­beam Vogue was so branded fol­low­ing the demise of the Singer mar­que in 1970. That was in­deed for just a very brief pe­riod, as you said, un­til all Ar­row four-door sa­loon mod­els in the UK be­came Hill­man Hunters with var­i­ous codes de­not­ing their places in the range.
