As many of you guessed correctly the mystery car is a Hillman Husky. We’ll post another mystery car soon but in the meantime, have a look at other cars rotting in the same Utah junkyard as the Husky.
Launched in 1961, the Renault Floride (or Caravelle in the U.S.) sat on a Dauphine platform and for better or worse used the Dauphine Gordini’s Ventoux engine in 845cc form. The Renault 8’s 1108cc replaced the Ventoux in 1965 and gave the Floride a much-needed boost in power. Production stopped in 1968. (As a side note, some early Renault 4s used a standard Dauphine engine bored out to 845cc; despite having the displacement they were different engines.)
