Rhode
RHODE HAWK

Fabric saloon, panelled saloon.

Swansong for the Birmingham firm, now forced to use the ubiquitous Meadows 4ED unit in place of their own strangely lubricated device. Thus there was magneto ignition, twin Amal carbs and pushrod operated overhead valves on the engine front, while an entirely conventional chassis had a close ratio four speed crash 'box in unit with the engine, semi-elliptic front springs and cantilevers at the rear. The fabric saloon cost £365, and although slightly clumsy looking with its oval rear quarter lights it was good for 70mph.
