Life with Farina 198/5 by Paul Hilditch of Moorcroft.

Some cars are just simply part of the family; they have their own quirky habits and misdemeanours as well as sharing some of our dearest memories. The Austin A40 Farina was the first in a new generation of family cars that employed Italian design houses. The crisply styled two-box design, was so athletically pleasing, that a premium could be charged for it, allowing the older car to remain in production. Life with Farina finds the car parked proudly outside a neat suburban house. On the reverse, a car in tartan-red is unpacked for a family countryside picnic with rolling hills, small hamlets and runaway rivers forming a tranquil backdrop to Life With Farina.
