Mention has been made of the move away from model names to model numbers, for example the 1934 season Cowley-Four becoming the Twelve-Four in the following model year.

The Fifteen-Six of 1935 provides another example being the successor to the Cowley-Six of the previous season and continuing on the chassis number series.It was indentical in appearance to the Cowley-Six of 1934 with the exception of the new frontal aspect, unbroken by the lamp bar( which took up a position behind the radiator grille) and the new rear bumper design with a hinged centre section fixed to the luggage grid.

Above the luggage grid the rear mounted spare wheel now boasted a Wilmot Breeden metal protecting cover as standard.In addition to the fixed or sliding head versions of the six-light Saloon, a Special Coupe model was available during the short production period of the Fifteen-Six, spanning eight months from September 1934.

Refinements included thermostatic control for the cooling system, a right hand accelorator pedal position, compensated dynamo voltage control. Spicer needle type universal joints, improved hydraulic shock absorbers, steel brake shoes, ventilating windows arranged to operate at the end of the window winder travel, horizontal braje lever.'Tell -Tale' trafficator mirrors. 'Rollsvisor' drivers sunblind and a battery master switch.
