The Series II six cylinder Sixteen and Eighteen cars shared the same bodies with the Wolseley versions (shown)

Announced to the press in June 1935. Shared a common body and gearbox. Boot protrusion at rear with access from inside the car. Luggage grid extra on fixed head versions. Special coupe models with four-light body with hinged boot at rear and special fitments such as chromium plated headlights, twin fog lamps and twin horns.

Until the middle months of 1936 the colour on the saloon bodies was confined to the bonnet top, along the styling line and the rear of the car. Subsequent saloon models had the colour area extended down to cover the complete lower half.

The Sixteen-Six was dropped from the listing before circa 1937 when the Eighteen-Six was supplied with chromium plated headlamps and a single colour finish.
