VAUXHALL H TEN-FOUR

Saloon, fixed-head coupé.

Over to unitary construction on a compact 94ins wheelbase, with downdraught carburettor, three speeds only, and the torsion bar ifs and hydraulic brakes already seen on the 25. All had nasty umbrella type handbrakes and a severe rust problem! Coupés only available for '38/'39, and came with separate export type frames, '39s had counterbalanced cranks, while '40s had longer and wider bodies, with the spare wheel mounted on the boot lid.
