Singer Vogue Mk1


*In which I continue my mild obsession with 1960’s Rootes Group cars*

A few weeks back, a tremendous racket outside turned out to be this Mk 1 Singer Vogue (1961/2) reversing down the road clearly with most of the exhaust system completely useless or possibly missing altogether. Since when it has been parked on my neighbour’s drive, chocked by bricks.

Distinguishable from the similarly styled Mk2 (both had the wraparound rear window) by the chrome bonnet strip & white front indicators the Vogue was an uprated, badge-engineered, version of the Hillman Super Minx.
