HISPANO-SUIZA T48

Chassis only listed, various customs.

Obscure small car, UK-available to 1932. Mechanically, it's a T49 Barcelona minus a couple of cylinders with the familiar three-speed 'box, dual coil ignition, and gearbox-driven servo brakes. Don't expect spectacular performance on 60bhp, though a few short-chassis sports versions were built. Very durable - the Spanish Government, which bought most of them, demanded a 1,500,000kms warranty, and got it! Central change and rather American styling on late cars.
