Is a 5A improved over a 5 ?

The rest of the interior of the 5 is more robust. Doorcards are fibreglass as are the long interior side panels compared to plastic long panels on 5a.The gearbox of the 5 and some very early 5a was sourced from the Ford Zodiac not as good as the later box with better 2nd gear ratio. Gearchange is di...

The first 500 SE5,s
