1938-39 Twelve Series 3

Introduction

The Series 3 Twelve was one of a range of four vehicles, Ten, Twelve, Fourteen and Twenty-Five, launched at the 1937 Motor Show. Unlike the other three models, the Twelve used a new  design body, with a 4 inch shorter wheel base than the Series 2 model it replaced. Passenger compartment space was maintained by positioning the rear seats over the back axle and with the provision of a boot with external access. An overhead valve engine, mated to a dry plate clutch and a four speed gear box, produced a fraction under 12hp (RAC).
