4-door saloon and a few specials.
Preferred to early V8 S-types and in any case simpler and more frugal. Long chassis six-light saloons (35 built, from '57) merely rare. Desirable power steering from 1956. Corrosion problems at back of chassis as well as on body. Commoner than Rolls-Royce, thus cheaper.
