For: the splendid old twin-cam Riley engine, right-hand shift, separate chassis, and RM-style torsion-bar front suspension. Against: the cam steering. Servo brakes this time. Go for late ones with overdrive and with the rear coil suspension sorted or else with the conventional leaf springs of the last cars. Automatic available from '56.
