1938-39 Eight Series 2

Introduction

The Eight Series 2 models, announced in September 1937, featured a painted radiator shell, matching the body colour and an inner of vertical slats, with three chromium bars. These replaced the Chromium plated shell and imitation honeycomb features of the Series 1 models. Easiclean wheels replaced the Magna wire wheels. Mechanically, the models were the same as the ones they replaced. Subsequently the rear axel ratio was modified and the plain hand brake cable replaced by a Bowden cable.
