SINGER SILENT SIX

Saloon, coupé de luxe, Continental saloon, Kaye Don saloon.

A bit more like it, the Silent six eventually grew up into a very attractive car. Engine had pushrod operated overhead valves and seven main bearings, there were vacuum brakes, a four-speed 'box, and a longer frame  (1143/4ins for '32, 1091/2ins thereafter). '32s had biplane bumpers and sidemounts, by '34 there was a single dropped bumper and ribbed type rad shells, and the Continental saloon was a really good looker. '34s had clutchless change, and the Kaye Don saloon had twin choke carbs, and a Beauvais body complete with vee-screen, waterfall-style grille, more heavily skirted wings and lower set lamps.
