Frame and suspension

Postby Eamonn » Sat Nov 04, 2017 11:12 pm

In 1949 the biggest change came with the introduction of rear suspension, when an 'S' was added to the marque code, i.e. 18MS, G80S and so on.

This rear suspension became known as 'candlestick suspension' and it was replaced by the sturdier 'jampot suspension' in 1951. Both these units were made in-house.

1957 saw the final change to the rear suspension, dropping the 'jampots' and buying-in Girling units.
