A new Singer model made its debut in 1961, the Hillman Super Minx based Vogue. The Vogue offered more luxury than the Hillman and came complete with a very distinctive front grille and extra chrome trim.
The elegant body offered better accommodation than the smaller Gazelle along with improved visibility. Bodystyles consisted of either a four door saloon or estate. Powered by a 62bhp 1592cc engine the Vogue came with a choice of manual, overdrive or semi-automatic gearboxes.
From 1962 a revised Mk II version of the Vogue appeared. The Vogue II now had better front seats, front disc brakes, higher gearing for manual cars and a new automatic gearbox option.

|Buying power - Rootes Sceptre/Vogue/Super Minx series - The Super Minx Vogue and Sceptre models were a step up from the cooking Minxes and Gazelles from Rootes, and always felt just that little bit more substantial and better engineered than their BMC Farina, Ford Corsair and rover or Triumph 2000 comtemporaties. RICHARD GUNN - who owns a Sceptre himself - looks at how to pick up a good one.|
