1939-48 Eight Series E

Introduction

Launched at the Motor Show in October 1938, the Eight Series E was a completely new design,  replacing that used for the 1935/Series 1/Series 2 Eight models. As with many other vehicles, production ceased during the war and recommenced in September 1945. Post war only the saloon versions were produced.
