STANDARD BIG NINE (1928-33)

Teignmouth fabric saloon, Teignmouth special saloon, Teignmouth Imperial Model, sports saloon, Fulham saloon, Selby tourer, Tourist coupé.

Known as the Nine until '31 when it became the Big Nine and acquired four speeds, a 100½ins wheelbase frame (1½ins longer than before), a rear tank, coil ignition, spiral bevel final drive, a new radiator and Marles and Weller steering. Uninspiring in any guise, it nevertheless offered plenty of space in return for a modest annual tax. Early cars had worm final drive and artillery wheels, from '33 there was the option of a self-change 'box, and the car always suffered from a whippy frame.
