Background: The ten-day International Motor Show this year is the biggest and best on record. In this Mecca of Motoring is the choicest type of car from Europe and the U.S. Small cars are a major feature.
The new Hillman Minx for the small car market particularly in Europe leads the world in its kind with automatic transmission to bring a new motoring luxury into the 1 1/2-litre family range.
Renault's new Florida is built with either a fixed or removable hard-top. The Florida is a sporty extension of the Dauphine series.
Another new French car is the Citroen baby Bijou - made in England. It arrived at the Show one day before it opened October 21. It has front-wheel drive, an air-cooled engine, a plastic four-seater body and a petrol mileage the makers claim to be 60 miles to the gallon.
The Russian Volga is a 2 1/2-litre saloon on view at the Show for the first time. The other Russian exhibit is the smaller Moskvitch with a 1.36-litre engine. Up to the eve of the Show no British firm had been found to sell them in Britain.
Holland's DAF 600 has noteworthy luggage space for the whole family with seven large suitcases. For easy driving the DAF 600 has no clutch pedal or gear lever.
In the 1960 range of Chrysler cars, the Plymouth Fury has the long lithe look, an engine on rubber and swivel front seats automatically swinging out as the doors open and retracting automatically as the doors shut.
The new Austin 7 has front-wheel drive. Its engine is mounted sideways under the bonnet. This is one of the Mini baby cars launched by the British Motor Corporation as one of the nation's lowest-priced cars.
Austin's A40 Countryman is a new version of the A40 saloon designed to answer a popular demand, the makers say, for a station wagon version of this Farina-designed model.
Ford's 1960 Anglia with its revolutionary engine and improved rear suspension and sliced-off rear window is the first now car with a major design change from the Dagenham works for several years.
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Two is the world's most luxurious car with an eight-cylinder engine developed by Rolls-Royce for the first time. Silver Cloud prices range from GBP5,802 to GBP8,451. Steering is power-assisted, transmission is fully automatic.
