It is an Austin Maxi [ADO14]. If I am not mistaken this is the 1750 model.

It was 11-2 years old when this was made, much older than most hire cars.

Don't knock Austin Maxi's very roomy and not that unreliable. Over 400,000 built 1969-1981.

So do I. I'm thinking about importing one of these if I can't get hold of an Allegro or a Maestro.

I can't really dislike these old British Leyland cars.

They have a nice kind of nostalgia about them. Ask many people who were children of the seventies and eighties and they will get all misty eyed about family trips spent in the lay-by.

@Lateef: :wow: And I've always thought you were a rational person. :whistle: Still, a Maxi is still probably a better choice than an Allegro or a Maestro. Main problem will certainly be finding a proper one.

The Maxi was indeed one of the more popular Austins on the German market (o.k., nearly the only other besided the Mini in the early 70ies), and some customers were indeed satisfied with them. As the brother of a K 70-friend. He really loved the Maxi, he had owned. Spacy interior, a not lame 1.8 liter-engine and, as he told, reliable technic. So toally different as the common German view on British cars.

I'm just kidding, cl82 :D I'm sticking with what I can find for now. However, if there was a neat looking original LHD Allegro Equipe for sale nearby, I'd purchase it, no matter how much it cost ... well, for less than 50.000 NOK, I'd hope.

It really should be possible for less than the amount you mentioned. Google says 50.000 NOK is 6 371,43946 Euro, so that should actually buy you a barn full off Allegros. I really don't want to interfere, but you really should know that for 6 371,43946 Euro or even less, you could also get a "real" car instead that won't cause you as much trouble. 3.900, for example, would buy you a real Porsche: Link to "suchen.mobile.de"
Wasn't it you who used to be an admirer of the Ford Scorpio? Again, your 50,000 NOK would be enough to buy more than a dozen of them:

Among all offers I've seen, this is the absolute bargain: Link to "suchen.mobile.de" Just needs a new exhaust manifold.

Hey Lateef, something more freaky - Police-Scorpios :D : Link to "www.vebeg.de"
They are auctions, but without seeing the other bids. Normally these cars are cheap to get. Unpopular models in unpopular colours. And if you read the details, you see, that all are fairly damaged.

The asking price for cars in the rest of Europe is generally ridiculously low compared to how it is in Norway. Some time ago, I calculated how much it'd cost to register a 1988 Opel Senator 4.0 in Norway originally costing 1.500 Euro, and it all went up to 56.000 NOK :wow: however with a vintage car (30 years+ old) you don't have to pay this "little" extra fee when importing your car. It's these kind of things that makes me want to emigrate from here.

I've never been to Norway personally, but it's universally known, that in Norway EVERYTHING is incredible more expensive than in the rest of Europe. And it's not an EU-member, any personal import/export-deals (which is more than one bottle of alcohol) are totally unattractive :o
But you must admit, that the Norwegian wages are also much higher than anywhere else. So a hard reason for many people to emigrate there for work - also several Germans are doing that. Germany became indeed an emigration-country in the last few years. For getting well-paid jobs abroad, Norway is one of the favourites.

Slightly off-topic, but this is the German "Air Force One" (in its first life the "DDR Air Force One", overtaken in 1990 from the West)

In fact a slightly rotten old clunker with a plenty of damages.

I've heard that from my uncle too, who had worked in Troms÷ in 1989/90.
And from a colleague really astonishing things about the drinking behaviour of Norwegian guys on a German wedding party :D Not even the extensive trained countryside-blokes couldn't hold pace with them :wow:

Yup. I probably have better chances finding one of these than a SAAB-Lancia 600 (that's my dream SAAB - mainly because of its rarity) :D

I've actually seen an old purple Austin Maxi driving the country roads in Vermont when I was driving to college.
Was the Maxi ever imported to the USA?

No - but a slight chance that they might have tried selling some in CDN - some BMC/BL cars were available into mid-70s for a few years after US sales ceased when emissions and safety regulations came in 68-70 onwards.
