Leyland muscle car.


Recommended Posts

Built by Leyland Australia, here's a YouTube clip of the saloon version.

What is more interesting however is the coupe version, the Leyland Force 7V. originally Michelotti styled.

Over 60 coupe's were built, but most were crushed when Leyland Australia failed. Apparently 10 survived, and one found its way back to the U.K. and was used by Lord Stokes, the then head of Leyland, as his personal transport.

Here's the original full size mock up,

All ten survived, and the one used by Lord Stokes was sold, and is now in New Zealand. This car while in the UK was used for evaluation purposes, and was rumoured to have been used as part of the development process of the Rover SD 1.
