Always fancied one of those. Weren't they also called 'Variants'?

I thought them rather attractive and they still look good today..

The early 411 cars were, the 412 I do not think carried that name

'scuse me while I catch up, I was sure that it was Type 3 & 4 estates that were "Variants"

I'm sure I had a car before a camera, so no piccies from me.

Crash box, push-rod brakes, automatic Luvax chassis-lube, Rover freewheel, leather and wood...
