    Default CX 2400 Pallas

    Please pardon my ignorance but what is the difference between a CX and a CX Pallas?

    Pretty much Kingswood v Premier. No Belmont.

    In our market, almost all the cars sold new were at Pallas level, but the boot badge may just note CX in some years. There may also be a few private imports in odd specifications and the earliest versions of the CX sold here would have been the entry level, no power steering 'Super' and the 2200 Pallas. The Super will be virtually extinct on account of the lack of power steering.

    And mine has power steering but is a Super......but it's a Super Safari (break/wagon) and pretty sure that was correct for those. Were there any Super saloons sold here which came with power steering from the factory??

    I think all real Pallas should have power steering. I will check in the library tonight to be sure though

    It's just trim level. Different cloth upholstery with leather available as an option, more sound deadening, higher spec carpets, more small chrome bits, full wheel caps, front electric windows as standard rather than an option. You get the idea. Pallas spec was available with all engines I think except the 2000 from '74. The longer wheelbase Prestige was the step above the Pallas. The GTi was a lateral move to more sportiness, but was equipped roughly the same. The wagons were never officially available as a Pallas, although the later ones were almost exactly Pallas trim.The overall effect was much more noticeable on the Series 1 and 1.5 cars than the Series 2 versions.

    I am still amazed at the value of CXs. They are incredibly reasonable given that, like the D, they are very interesting in shape and performance. Price set to go up I think!

    My 1975 build CX super 2200 saloon has power steering, last time I looked I think I saw a white steering governor and hydraulics going down to the rack. I have never driven this car and kept it because of its age. It would tear apart if driven at speed due to virtually no windscreen pillars and no metal under bonnet hinges!
    Are there any other 75 CX's around?

    I don't know if it counts for your purposes or not, but I do know of one very nice all-original 2200 Super in the San Francisco Bay Area. I don't remember for sure, but it's either a '74 or '75.
