James Walshe goes to Malta in search of British classics built there and gathers them together at the factory for the first time since they rolled off the line. The plant was opened in 1960 with the Triumph Herald being the first to be built, having been welded together, painted and upholstered locally (Maltese cars got their own paint schemes and interior trim). It sold well and soon, with a craving for a greater model variety, Car Assembly Ltd began producing versions of the Hillman Hunter and later, the Spitfire, Mini, Austin 1100, Rover P6 and Commer van. At one point, 55 percent of the local vehicle market was made up of cars built in Malta. We explore this further in the current issue, and meet some of the people who worked on the cars as they were built. We also take a look at the island’s incredible classic car culture, taking part in one of the most incredible classic rallies in the world!
