Singer Gazelle IIIC

Based on the humble Hillman Minx the 1961 Singer Gazelle IIIC continued with the sporting/luxury saloon theme first introduced in 1956. The Gazelle used a 1592cc, overhead valve engine "Rootes" engine, which could be found in the Minx in detuned form. Transmission choices included manual, manual-overdrive or an automatic gearbox.

As with previous Gazelle models the IIIC could be ordered as either a saloon, estate or an attractive convertible. Sadly the convertible and estate versions disappeared from the line-up in 1962, the estate being effectively replaced by the new Vogue.
