    It's amazing how some cars just survive like that.

    Not ugly and your Dad would have been happy to have run around it in watching BL cars on the wayside, bonnets up.

    It is ugly. My dad's favourite car in his later years was his Toyota Carina Carina-4-03.jpg
    like this one. The only BL car he had was an Austin 1300GT and he hated it in the end.

    What family car would you classify as " beautiful" of same vintage and similar price range ?

    My Mum's old Chevette estate was better looking in my eyes.

    I think that we could substute the word 'ugly' for 'bland'. The Carina, Stanza and Horizon were boring boxes if you ignore that the Stanza broke ground as the first Nissan-conceived FWD....considering that the Cherry 100A was conceived by Prince (PMC Ltd).

    Ugly is at another level.

    The owner did a good job in preserving the orginal paint/body. Even the interior looks amazing.
