This is a Cresta PA and the model was produced from 1957 to 1962 with 81,841 units produced. Now regarded as a classic, I believe the vast majority succumbed to rust quite quickly. The styling shows a heavy American influence. This 1962 version has only 27,716 miles on the odometer and I suspect it has spent most of its 55 years indoors.

There is an Austin 1100 or 1300 behind. My father bought one of those for me to learn to drive in, but when I failed my test and lost interest it went for scrap - as I recall it was pretty rough anyway.
