here be dooor
I don’t know about you, but in my I-Spy book, when I look under the section relating to the Austin Cambridge it says “See Morris Oxford” but that section rather unhelpfully refers me onto Wolsley, which in turn directs me to Riley, who in turn refer me to MG which then refers me back to the Austin Cambridge. Truly they are a confusing collection of cars, which arrived as a result of internal BMC politics, with the aim of selling variations of the car to differing target markets. So when I hear tell of a diesel engine MG Magnette estate it is the power plant that gets my attention, it is not until I meet with the present owner, Alan Lovell, and his good friend, and the cars builder Alan Hunt, that I was about to discover that the car is far from a simple ‘Engenious’ conversion. .
