Paris report
A new long-wheelbase Salmson, fitted with the 2.3-litre twin o.h.c. four-cylinder engine common to others in the range, has a striking four-door saloon body by Motto of Turin. It is expected that about 50 to 60 of these will be produced during next year. Salmsons share with the 2.4-litre Jaguar the distinction of fitting cantilever rear springs.
