I had a bright orange Allegro. I actually drove it to a local inspection garage and when it surprisingly passed I asked the owner how much he would give me for it.
300 quid and a long walk home. One of the best decisions I made in my life.
the all-agro was based on the austin 1100/1300 series. in redesigning it they made the car heavier and with less interior room. truly a lose-lose, it’s only claim to fame was a 5 speed transmission on the 1500 and 1750 engines.
