SINGER 1½-LITRE LE MANS

Sports 2-seater.

A very desirable motor car, the Le Mans version featured triple carb set-up, 84mph top speed, hydraulic brakes, close ratio 'box and a similar body to the Nine Le Mans on its 92ins wheelbase frame. Early '34  models had coil ignition and non-crossflow heads, thereafter they were fitted with Scintilla magneto ignition and crossflow heads, the drag link ran fore and aft on the offside instead of transversely, and an oil filter was fitted. A charming car, with excellent braking, handling, steering and gearchange, it offered remarkable value for money at all of £375, undercutting Riley's MPH, for example, by over £200.
