    Another reason leading to the R4 being discontinued, the intrusion of the gear lever into the passenger compartment. EU rules being changed to make cars safer.

    I often thought a similar thing with XA/XB Falcons with their nut-splitter dashboards, and they were made to have a front centre passenger unlike an R4 :-)

    Hmm! It wouldn't he all that hard to modify the R4 gear change rod to eliminate its spear-like character. A judiciously placed Hooke/Cardan joint or two would probably suffice.

    (I must say I don't like the sound of nut-splitting dashboards; presumably they rotated downwards in a crash.)

    cheers! Peter

    I don't think you need worry about the middle passenger, even the 7 dwarfs or delegates for an anorexic's convention would struggle to sit 3 abreast in an R4.

    There's nothing much under the first half of the bonnet length until you get to the radiator and the metal is thin to save weight so they'd fold up pretty easy. Also being low the bumper would be little better than useless so the bonnet would take the hit in any collision.
    But every thing bolts together in an R4 so they'd probably unbolt the bent panels and bolt-up straight replacements.

    Primaquatre V un camion of some sort, good that the sunroof survived the crash.

    The astute observer will have noticed the truck is sporting cable brakes, ah the good ol'days.

    Good pickup JW, the roofline looks like it has been raised quite a bit, hence the two part windscreen. Perhaps this was for a wheelchair bound occupant or maybe this car was modified for a Papal visit.

    Could be actually. I was thinking boy racer. Shaved head, power up from 12 bhp to 15 or so. No money for tyres.
