Looks like a Morris Isis. That would be the better car.

Looks Chinese with that wrong badge on the wing......Yes, Isis. If it is the car I'm thinking of it has gone through quite a few hands lately - that picture is from the Pioneer Automobiles website in Newbury but they reckon they've sold it.

Maybe a better car but not only would it not fit in my lock up I quite like the 4 cylinder's set up of rack and pinion steering. Can't see that the long wheelbase and boat-anchor C series would help the sweet handling and reasonable economy much, either...

Okay not Ebay, but I forgot they made these.

I much prefer the looks of the original Crusader, this looks too 'boy racerish' to me but no doubt goes like shit off a shovel.

Agree! The Clan looked purposeful whereas this one is like a Lego Ferrari....

It'd look better without that wing on the back, but it is detachable.

I bet working on that engine is a right bugger though.

Well these seem a bargain even if they do only end up round the oval
