HUMBER HAWK I/II

Saloon.

Take one pre-War Hillman 14, give it hydraulic brakes and deluxe trimmings, and re-badge it. Dreary 'twin-trim' cloth upholstery, but it's got a sliding roof and looks like a real car. Performance very agricultural: 65mph will be hard work. Avoid Mk II which has column shift, though no other changes.
