LEA-FRANCIS 13 HP SPORTS

2/4-seater, coupé.

Originally a one-off, built for Charles Follet and fitted with a Carlton 2/4-seater body, this was in effect a tuned 13, with a high compression engine with polished ports and twin carbs. 4.75 back axle ratio standard. Later productionised, with bodies by Corsica, and there was a lovely FH coupé. One of the open cars can still be seen competing in VSCC events.
