PEERLESS GT

4-seater sports coupè.

Triumph TR3 mechanicals, but De Dion rear end; overdrive almost invariably fitted. Phase I cars (250 made), recognisable by projecting headlamps, have multi-mounding grp body bonded and riveted to chassis, an arrangement which accounts for disproportionately poor survival rate relative to later Phase 2. New one-piece body of P2 is big improvement, and is identifiable by recessed headlamps. Handles well, and good for 105mph; reappears as Warwick.
