I can attest to the Creation of the DuraPine by Mr Bill.

Rootes had a "shooting brake" long before the series Alpines came to be marketed, though maybe not as nicely appointed as Ian's description. Remember the rumor is the Alpine was designed to use the basic Husky floor pan(sort of, except from the firewall forwards).

I long ago wondered how an Alpine with a Husky top grafted on would turn out. I do know it would not be a simple operation due to the differing body architectures.


oops - sorry for the size - not my picture

Ken,

I "think" Singer and Humber letters are the same. Don't know about Commer.

The door handles are a bit different, aren't they? Think they were used as boot latches by some model but don't recall which one.
