1965 Autocars Sussita
Should be labeled The Untouchable
The car had a Ford Anglia engine and transmission. Suspension was leaf springs all-around, live axle at the rear, dead at the front. Everything else was very simple, too.
Those components proved reliable, unlike Triumph components of later models.
I had no mechanical problems with the car. A relative of mine drove such a car until the 90's, with very few problems.
The car is quite tall with a high center of gravity, combined with crude suspension.
The result was overturning at quite low speed, finding myself upside down, but almost unscathed. The top of the car, though needed major rebuilding.
Drivers of the cars were mocked at by: "Don't drive to the south where camels eat the (glass-reinforced plastic) body."
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
