1933 COACHWORK FOR THE HORNET SPECIAL CHASSIS.
E.W. Eustace Watkins, Ltd., 12, Berkeley Street, London, W.1.
THE well known range of E.W. bodies mounted on the Hornet Special chassis will remain much the same for 1933.
First of all, there is the ” Daytona” Special 2/3 seater, the chief alterations to which are a less sloping bonnet and scuttle, which will give a rather more sporting line ; a wider and deeper petrol tank, which slightly modifies the shape of the back of the body ; the instrument board is made to conform to the shape of the two cowls over the scuttle ; and a choice of two types of wings, either the close-up cycle kind, which were standard on 1932 models, or a new and very attractive type of long flared, helmet wings. Then there is a new model, the fourseater sports saloon, which is a very pretty fully panelled body, capable of carrying four adults in comfort. Two wide doors are fitted, and the quarter lights provide
good vision for the rear passengers. A clever feature of this body is a new type of single panel windscreen, which can be wound open with one hand, and is self-locking. Flared wings, similar to those on the new “Daytona,” and a sliding roof are standard fittings.
The “E.W.” International 2/4 seater remains the same as last year. It will be remembered that this model has cutaway doors and a folding windscreen. For an extra £5, a longer body can be supplied, giving a greater degree of comfort in the back seats.
The ” E.W.” range is completed by the two popular coupes, the ” Silex,” a 2/4 seater job, with a sliding roof, and the ” Ariel-Tickford,” which. has a 2/4 seater folding head body, of the well-known ” Tickford ” pattern. PRICES: ” Daytona ” 2/3 seater, £275. Four-seater Sports Saloon, £295. “E.W.” International 2/4 seater from
£250 to 2270.
” Silex ” 2/4 seater coupe, £280. ” Ariel-Tickford ” coupe, £285.
JAR VIS. Jarvis & Sons, Ltd., Victoria Crescent, Wimbledon, S.W.19.
The sports model built by this well known Wimbledon firm of motor agents and coachbuilders is a very comfortable two seater, with lines of a four seater, but the rear compartment is only intended for luggage.
The car is extraordinary attractive in appearance, which is no doubt accounted for by the body being carried well within the wheel-base of the car. The mudguards are gracefully flared, and with a large rear petrol tank and rear spare wheel mounting the car looks a real thoroughbred.
The door is cut away, and brought forward into the scuttle for easy entry and exit, and an ordinary outside hood is fitted. A prettier car we have seldom seen —and the price is £265.
