Anadol SV–1600

Anadol SV-1600 is a middle class car model produced by Anadol between 1973 and 1982. The vehicle is the world’s first 5-door station wagon with a fiberglass body. It had a completely different design and appearance than the 4-door Anadol models, and was inspired by Reliant’s Scimitar sports-station coupé.

Several details of the car bore similarities with the station wagon designs of Bertone and Pininfarina in that period. The first examples of the SV–1600 had single-colour paint, while the front hood had a spoiler, which was something new for station cars.

After some time, a more luxurious version was produced, and bi-colour paint were applied, while new interiors were introduced. Starting from 1976, the SV-1600 received aluminium wheels, a new steering wheel, new side mirrors, and a single-colour paint with a black-and-white stripe on the sides. The car also had retractable seats for further enlarging the trunk space.
