7-passenger sedan, tourer, convertible coupé, limousine, various customs.

Magnificent motor car. Engine had nine main bearings, cam was chain driven and the unit produced 132hp at 3000rpm. Series A only available on 144ins wheelbase, wire wheels optional, brakes were servo assisted, and the car owed its low lines to a hypoid final drive. Some bodies splendid, especially customs by, among others, Brunn, while standard offerings also attractive.
