In building the vehicle database for the club, I am going to build in a drop down menu for makes and models of Rootes vehicles to ensure consistency in spelling, accuracy of model with make, etc. This will allow easier and more accurate searches and sorting. I am no Rootes expert so am needing some help here. This is what I know / have found in my searches so far. Rootes seemed to use the same names for several models so may be appropriate to list the same name under several makes. Please provide input / corrections to my list. This will then be the basis for my database (only names on the list will go in the database).

Thanks for the replies. Would love to see one of each of these. Our database is up and running and will be posted on the teae website monthly with updates as members send in their data.
