Footnotes

  • Post-WWI Lanchesters were in the main large, well-appointed, high-speed conveyances aimed at the luxury car market. The company’s 1930 merger with Daimler (itself part of the BSA conglomerate) brought with it a change of policy, subsequent Lanchesters being smaller and cheaper cars. Introduced in 1932 and the smallest ever Lanchester, the Ten was unique in its class at the time, having both a Daimler fluid flywheel and Wilson four-speed pre-selector gearbox, a combination it shared with other Daimler and Lanchester models of the period. The engine was a 1.2-litre (later 1.4-litre) four-cylinder overhead-valve unit producing 34bhp at 4,000rpm. The car had an adequate performance with a top speed of just over 60mph (96km/h). With their coachbuilt bodies and advanced specification, the various versions of the Ten were considerably more expensive than many of their rivals: the £325 fixed-head coupé costing £110 more than the equivalent Morris Ten-Four, for example. The Ten remained in the Lanchester programme until 1939 with over 12,000 being made. Little is known of the history of this particular example of one of the 1930s’ best-appointed small saloons, but it seems to have been registered in Buckinghamshire in August 1933. Offered with V5C, some old correspondence, and last MoT’d in 1995.
