A twenties best-seller, still with a splash-lubricated engine, wet-plate clutch and 56bhp engine, though with new styling (oval rear window, ribbon radiator shell). Bendix brakes with four-wheel handbrake. American '31s had 2.8-litre motors, but no change here till early '32, though free wheels available from July '31, and stoneguards on later de luxe models. Wood or wire wheels, and choice of 4-light of 6-light four-door sedans.
