TRIUMPH TWELVE

Saloon.

One way of using up spare 11/2-litre engines, and at £285 it actually undercut the small Jaguar. Under the skin, though, there wasn't anything new - the synchro 'boxes, hydraulic brakes, underslung frames and auto chassis lubrication had all been seen before. Spare wheel was now in the boot, there were pressed steel wheels, and the waterfall grille had gone, to be replaced by something vaguely Jaguar-ish.
