Nice spotting Terry, I`ve never seen one of those before. I wonder if it was a prototype or something? Looks quite Talbot-ish as well most obviously BX, though I can see some FSO Polonez in it as well.

'Fraid I cant take the credit for it ....it cropped up the 2CVGB forum I just thought it might be of interest on here ...considering that the Scimitar GT and the later SS were rear wheel drive the similarity must've ended with the shape of the bodyshell ....also of interest was the designs for the replacement BLMC 1100/1300 .....which was of course the All-agro ....

That's cool - could do with bigger wheels, like many cars of that era appear to us now 8)
