Sports 2-seater, de luxe sports 2-seater, 4-seater tourer.

A schoolboy dream, subtitled 'if you are going to make a commercial flop, at least do it in style'. The Squire definitely had style. A rigid cruciform braced frame carried some exquisitely made running gear, the Anzani R1 engine had twin ohc, and a Roots blower and could propel the car to 100mph, there was a four-speed Wilson 'box, and the 15ins hydraulic brakes were superb. Semi-elliptics were fitted all round, and it was made to Bugatti standards. Problems concerned the engine's proclivity  to lift its head, the brakes being too powerful for the front springs, and the rpice - £1095 was a lot of money in '35. Seven were made, three were built up subsequently, and the bodies were glorious, none more so than the Vanden Plas de luxe two-seater.
