Outwardly identical to the 14hp six-light saloon, the 18hp saloon was launched in 1949 along with the Sports of the same engine size.
|Engine:||Lea-Francis 2,496cc, 90 or 95bhp|
In the saloon the engine had only a single carburettor, but still gave 95bhp with the 6.8:1 compression ratio and managed to perform creditably in spite of its 27cwt. A specially tuned car was even timed at 105mph.
Luxuriously appointed and with plenty of power to pull its high top gear, it was sadly not a commercial success, and only 80 of these handsome saloons were made. Very few survive.
