As it’s the 50th Anniversary of the creation of BLMC, we’re running a series of features throughout 2018 that celebrate, reflect and inform about the achievements of British Leyland Motor Corporation. It’s not all one way, of course, and to find out what you think the greatest legacy of the company is, we’re giving you the chance to vote for what you think are the greatest cars produced by the company.
Considering that’s now ancient history in the fast-paced automotive world, it’s amazing to see just how much love – some of it ironic – that there is out there for the products which the company produced between 1968 and 1986 (when the initials BL disappeared and were replaced by the Rover Group).
What we’re trying to do is set out a Top 10 list of the greatest vehicles made, developed and designed by BLMC – as voted for by you, the loyal and enthusiastic readers of AROnline. Please vote for your favourite vehicles here, and we’ll see which one wins – after the poll closes on 4 April 2018. We’ll total up these votes, and those from the AROnline Facebook group poll, and declare the winner of 10 April 2018, before counting down your favourites…
Suggestions for errors and omissions are always gratefully received, and the poll is open to all new cars launched by BL between 1968-1986…
