Haven't seen a BMC 1800 in many a year, the Wolseley version was a lovely car.

I can live with that based on the fun and big smiles it would give:)

I think we'd all love one of those James :D And I know exactly what a 22CV is ;)

But you won't get one for love nor money... Such a shame it never made it to production :(

Truly a stunner of a car :D

Not unless somebody manages to cobble one together (from a Traction with a knackered BER engine and so on).

James, do you think Jim could do that in 12 minutes a day for the rest of the decade? :-D

Well, how about a 22CV Activa? The problem is finding a V8 Citroen engine, to do it properly, otherwise an ES9J V6 would have to do.

Ahh, now I think such a lovely car deserves something better than an ES9 James... My choice would be a 24V PRV V6 as in the early XM amongst others...

They sound utterly magical :D

A repro PRV powered 22CV would be an awesome custom car/hot rod :) Very unique and very special...

I'd love to see it done 8-)
