H.E. 12/35

Tourer, sports coupé, sports saloon.

The perils of asking 35bhp to haul nearly 3000lbs of car, no wonder they had recourse to a 6:1 axle ratio. Alloy pistons, coil ignition, quarter-elliptic springs at each end, and vast 151/2ins brake drums with an adjustment to give variable power to front and rear. It managed 65mph with the optional-extra Cozette blower 1.6-litre engine on 1931 models.
