Model:Mk VI Radford Countryman
External Colour:Smoke green over sage
The Countryman Mark II was first encountered at the Earls Court Motor show in 1951 where Radford had his own stand in the coachbuilding section for the first time. A full 4 to 5-seater saloon, the rear seats fold down giving the option of 40 cubic feet of storage space, four times larger than a normal boot in any other coach-built saloon.
This Countryman Mark II is built on a standard Mark VI chassis with the body made of aluminium panels. The boot flap drops and a flap incorporating the rear window lifts with spring assistance. The spare wheel is behind a separate number plate flap with other features including electric windows, radio aerial, anti-dazzle mirror, tables in the front and rear and rear armrests slide forward to reveal a fitted cocktail cabinet also suitable for a table for glasses. A sandwich box is fitted behind the side panels in the front doors.
In 2018 the Countryman benefited from a service, including a set of new tyres. Minor works have also been carried out to the suspension, brakes and steering.
On the road, the car drives outstandingly keeping up with modern day machinery when called upon. The car is finished in smoke green over sage, complete with all important documents and history.
