Yes. I believe the earlier models had a three cylinder 2 stroke engine. All of mine had a V4 engine the same as a Ford Taunus.
It was set at an angle and the cylinders fired in the opposite order to what was normal on British cars.
Also they had column change gears (what happened to them?) and the windows didn't drop but pivoted from a single point.
What with that and heated seats this was a unique car at the time and, as I said, I'd love one now.
