Vanguard Six - new model

A new lightweight six-cylinder engine was introduced in a more luxurious version of the Standard Vanguard. Unlike the four­cylinder, it has no cylinder liners, and by use of siamesed bores, cast in pairs, length has been restricted to only 11/2 in. more than that of the four. More surprising, although it is of conventional cast iron construction, it weighs 57 lb. less. It gives 85 b.h.p. (S.A.E.) from 1,998 c.c, and has two Solex carburetters of a very compact new design.
