With Ferguson 4WD and Dunlop Maxaret anti-lock brakes, I described it in 1968 as a car which was safe because it enabled one to avoid accidents, instead of merely being safe after one. And the 6267cc Chrysler V8 enabled it to do 130mph “on the M-ways of civilised countries”.
I was extremely impressed by this very sophisticated car.
