BRITISH SALMSON 20/90 HP

2-seater sports, sports saloon, drophead coupé.

No French counterpart to this one, for all the traditional Croix de Saint-André on the radiator. 90bhp four-bearing six gives speeds in the low 90s, steel-spoke wheels and ifs as on S4Ds, plus the usual sychro four-speed 'box. First seen with Bendix brakes, but these soon replaced by Lockheeds. Two-seaters made in slab tank of later sloping-tail forms.
