1931-33 R11/30, R11/40 & R13/40

Introduction

Introduced in late 1931, the R11/30, R11/40 & R13/40 models superseded the earlier R-type. The “Middleweight Champion” name from the R-type was retained.  Two chassis lengths were available, with the shorter chassis offering either 30 cwt or 2 ton load capacity variants, and the longer chassis a 2 ton load. The two ton capacity models could be distinguished by the use of twin rear wheels and were fitted with the larger 19.2hp ZB engine, whereas the 35 cwt model used the 17.9hp ZA engine.  By the cessation of R-type production in 1933, over 17,700 vehicles had been manufactured. A bus chassis variant, the RP and two 45/50 cwt capacity RD bulk carrier chassis were also produced.
