    Background: In the Paris Motor Show - opened October 1 - of the seventy four makes exhibited from a dozen countries nearly a third are British. The Chevrolet Corvair is America's first rear engines oar designed to answer European small car competition.
    The British Sunbeam Alpine attracted considerable attention - and so did the Harris and Austin Mini oars. The only new French model on display is this Facel-Vega convertible Coupe called the Facellia. Its engine was designed by British technicians. On show for the first time is the new Ford Anglia with its distinctive year window.
    The Renault stand demonstrated the new suspension of the Dauphins. Last December's Franc devaluation has raised prices of imported cars by about twenty per cent.
