SS & Jaguar Cars
Following on from his book S.S.I and S.S.II Cars, Allan Crouch studies the models that succeeded them: the 1½ and 2½ Litre of 1936-37, the SS 100 sports car, the 1½, 2½ and 3½ Litre of 1938-48, and the Mark V of 1948- 51. Apart from the 1½ Litre models, what was common to these cars was the six-cylinder engine, based on a Standard sidevalve unit for which Harry Weslake designed an overhead-valve cylinder head giving very respectable power outputs.
These engines endowed the cars, starting with the 1936 2½ Litre, with performance that placed them straight into the class occupied by much more expensive machines such as the Bentleys and Lagondas of the time.
Combined with flowing body styling inspired by William Lyons himself, the result was some strikingly attractive and desirable machines at extraordinarily keen prices.
