Reg. no. Not Registered
Chassis no. LM5084
Engine no. LM4573
In 1922 Vauxhall matched its rival Sunbeam in offering an alternative, smaller and less expensive car to the highly successful 30/98. Their offering was the 2.3 litre 14-40hp M-Type which featured a four-cylinder detachable-head engine, a three-speed in-unit gearbox (instead of the four-speed separately mounted type of the larger models), a single-plate clutch, and rear brakes only. It sold for around £750 against some £1,600 for the 30-98. From 1925, the 14-40 adopted a four-speed gearbox and for 1926 the model gained front-wheel brakes. By repute this car went out to Australia in 1929 with an English cricketer on tour and there is a typed account of the car\'s life in Australia. There is also an Australian logbook and various Australian correspondence in the file. The car appears to be in good cosmetic condition, the engine may require some recommissioning following a period of storage. There are also some spares available with the car (to be collected from Newent, Gloucestershire by special arrangement).
