I had a lovely red Dolomite in 1974 (not the Sprint though). Lots of lovely wood inside as well as a vinyl rof - whoaaaa!

Yeah, I had vinyl roof too. Mine was a 73 model, but it was 7 years old when bought it from a friend. Mine had Sprint alloy wheels! (I had to return them to my friend when the car eventually died).
