Seen these a couple times - interesting from Southern Alberta

Austin A125 Sheerline with a 3995 cc OHV straight six engine. They made around eight thousand of these and I suspect most stayed in the UK. This one has right hand drive and still has its British plates (MKL 933). There was a limousine version but this is the shorter saloon variant.

Oh the front of that Jag is an abomination - I think I would have to break in just to rip off the grille and headlight things.

There was a guy around here trying to sell his Sheerline for a year or so - no nibbles and I didn't think it was a bad car or a bad price.
