Admired by those seeking comfort and a little well-mannered style - a true little classic.
Singer was part of a huge organisation that specialised in well-made cars appealing to a conservative market. Known as the sporting variant of the group, the brand became rebadged to Hillmans after the war, albeit with more power and plusher furnishings. Introduced in 1956, the Gazelle underwent several iterations - this is the MK VI.
Powered by the favoured 1725cc engine, the Gazelle is a deceptively brisk performer. 14,842 MK VI cars left the Coventry production line, but due to the large and complicated semantics of the Rootes organisation, its standing as a comfortable and refined family car had been overshadowed not only by other Rootes cars, but a whole gamut of Ford and BMC rivals.
As a rolling restoration, with a sound chassis combined with a well-maintained history, this rather underrated car could be ideal for someone looking for a starter classic with lots of style, some fascinating original paperwork and an exceptionally low-mileage.
