BSA SCOUT SERIES 6

2-seater, 4-seater sports, 2-door sport saloon, 2-seater drophead coupé.

An extra couple of inches wheelbase, an extra crankshaft bearing, and steel-spoke wheels identify this one, which was credited with 70mph from 32mph, even if contemporary road tests didn't fully substantiate this. Only single-carburettor engines quoted. Drophead (possibly only 6) from summer 1939.
