I never noticed so far that these cars had such an elegant roofline.

March 72+ Victor FE 2300SL Estate for window chrome over 1800 Deluxe. There was a 3300SL estate as well (March 72 - Sept 73) with same trim but rare, followed by a very rare Ventora Estate (Sept 73 - Jan 76) with higher Ventora trim (wheel trims, chrome waist strip and honeycomb grille, though did not have vinyl roof).

Rather wasteful of interior space, though, which is why Peugeots, Volvos and even Montegos were more popular.

@chris40: You've certainly got a point there. It's totally understandable that they didn't sell well. Back then, estates/station wagons had to be practical and roomy, nothing else, just as you indicated. However, car-buyers seem to think differently today, for better or for worse. At least that's my humble opinion when I see questionable latest novelties like Link to "commons.wikimedia.org"

It was, at least in Germany an image-thing. Estates were seen as pack donkeys for craftsmen and and shop owners. The begin of the changing was the Mercedes W123 T-Modell. The BMW 02 touring was too rarely built to have an influence.
I still have an "ADAC motorwelt" from the late 70ies, where families with many children have reported their problems to find an adequate large family car. Their choices were mainly the VW Bus, the Peugeot 504 Break, an US-Wagon or - tow cars.

Seem to recall that Victors had there wing mirrors on the front wing and had a Victor badge on the front wing inbetween the drivers door and front wheel has this estate has neither of these features maybe it is the later VX series were the wing mirrors were on the drivers door like the one above.
