LLOYD 350

Open 2-seater, 3-seater saloon.

Bizarre light car using a Villiers two stroke engine producing a mighty 111/2bhp! Light car and Cyclear maxed one at 44mph at Brooklands! Advanced features included independent suspension all round, even if it was by simple link and transverse leaf, and a backbone chassis. Motorcycle heritage shows through in chain final drive to nearside rear wheel, gravity fuel feed, and features like a hand starter, thermosyphon cooling and hand operated windscreen wiper were just downright crude. How many survive?
