SALMSON S4E

2-door saloon, 4-door saloon, drophead coupé.

Largest of the range, a pleasant car with excellent steering. Lockheed hydraulic brakes now standard wear, the frame was on a 118ins wheelbase, and springing at the front was by torsion bars. Cotal 'box was an option again, giving fast relaxed changing. While soft by 10-20 standards, it was good for 80mph and 0-50mph in 13.2secs, very respectable performance indeed.
