LEYLAND P76 SALOON
4-door 6-seater saloon.
A strange aberration by British Leyland. Because Australians like big cars, Leyland Australia produced one, with a conventional round monocoque, styled by Michelotti, and the choice of a six-cylinder overhead cam (related to the Princess-type E6), or V8s developed from the Leyland ‘Terrier’ truck engines. It used MacPherson strut front suspension with a rigid-axle rear, front discs, and a choice of a three-speed, four-speed or Borg Warner automatic transmission. In other words, large, poorly built and conventional in all ways. It failed badly, and lasted fewer than two years. The short-wheelbase Force 7 coupé version could have been promising.
