BEVERLEY 22/90

Sports saloon.

Oddity by straight-eight specialists (nothing else ever made) who also built components for Bentley and Invicta. Gear-and-chain drive to twin upstairs camshafts, 90bhp (more with optional blower), four-speed Warner 'box, choice of two axle ratios and two wheelbase lengths. Radiator is 'squashed Bentley', even down to the winged-B badge. One survives, though it had been hacked around when discovered.
