BALLOT RH3

Tourer, saloon, cabriolet.

Last of its line, with nine-bearing 105bhp engine, gear-driven ohc, twin-choke Zenith carburettor, Dewandre servo brakes, and (on late models) constant-mesh gears. Very elegant (Figoni and Vanvooren bodies) but less dependable than the vintage fours. Few sold in Britain, and production tailed off after the Hispano-Suiza takeover.
