How it should look:

It think theirs might have actually lost its front bumper, hence the number plate being stuck on the grille. A proper wonderfully sh*te car. :happy:

Yes. A number of Austins had the luxury Vanden Plas name attached. When I say "luxury", it was basically just vinyl leather seats and a piece of lacquered walnut stuck to the dashboard. :happy:
