Presenting the 1951 Birmingham 7000, a luxury coupe for a luxury lifestyle. Made for eating up higway miles with its powerful V8 and comfy leather seats

That seems like strong opposition for any company producing sports luxury coupes in 1951.

I would like to see some modern designs from this brand further down the line, but right now, it makes sense to flesh out its backstory with some classic models first.

Whatever the model year, though, you don’t have to be a Brummie in order to like or even love anything from this company.

I havent updated this in a while, but here is one of my better designs.
THE 1975 BIRMINGHAM SIXT
This car is your typical junkyard-filling malaise era coupe, which somehow sold well back in the day. This car came in 3 trims. General specification: Steel ladder, steel body panels, Double wishbone (Front), solid axle coil (Rear)
GL4
The most basic trim, with a wheezy i4 and a less luxury appearance. this one is the best at MPG.

Specification

Transmission: 4 speed manual
Weight: 1230KG

Cost: $8927
Performance: Top speed=90.3 MPH, 0-100kmh=17.1 seconds, 14.4MPG

GSL6
The 2nd most luxury trim, with a bigger and more powerful i6 and more chrome stripping. It also got improved suspension. This was the best selling model.
