TATRA 12HP

Sportsman's drophead coupé.

Still with air cooling, this one only had two bearings, although coil ignition and pushrods were still part of the formula. Brakes were cable operated, there was all round independent suspension, and the car had excellent rack and pinion steering. It was also incredibly noisy. Distinguished by the ability to negotiate potholes at 35-40mph, yet the tendency to pitch on better surfaces.
