VAUXHALL LIGHT SIX DY/DX (1935-36)

Saloon, fixed-head coupé, drophead coupé, 4-door cabriolet, numerous specials.

Big Six styling with engine set forward in a redesigned X-frame, plus Dubonnet coil ifs for a boulevard ride and the infamous curtsey under heavy braking. Mechanical brakes, wire wheels, underslung rear springs, recessed trafficators and flush boots on saloons were all features. Choice of special bodies almost limitless, but ill-maintained suspensions spell trouble.
