It's not uncommon, and the, ahem, weight of the driver is a factor.  Don't
forget that when these cars were designed the average Brit was 10 stone (140
lbs) dripping wet.  Other causes have been broken springs/leaves, odd tyres,
or unevenly inflated tyres.  Don't forget that a problem at one corner will
affect the diagonally opposite corner.
