This model became available some twelve months after about 7,000 other 6-cylinder variants had been produced and unlike the larger models it did not share the body with an optional engine size - nor was a Special Coupe version offered.

With the exception of the all Black Saloon the colour schemes were all two-tone with the coloured area extended down to cover the lower half of the body.

Late in 1936 a 4-speed gearbox was offered as an option to the 3-speed unit. March 1937 the 4-speed gearbox was standardised.
