1984-1995 AUSTIN Montego specifications

1984-1995 AUSTIN Montego specifications Classic and Performance Car

Considering the Montego is so closely based on the Maestro, it looks refreshingly different. Hardly handsome, but certainly a departure. Built to capture the hearts and minds of the UK’s company car drivers, the Montego performed exceedingly well considering its less than inspired underpinnings. Wide range of engines (from 1.3- to 2-litres) and trim levels make this a car for all people, and as it’s currently unloved, it’s a bargain buy. Seven seater Countryman estate is a cheap people carrier – just make sure those sills aren’t too rusty and the engine leak-free.
