Lanchester - Lanchester 14

The Lanchester Fourteen was introduced in late 1937, starting off as a 1527cc six cylinder "Roadrider" or 1809cc with independent front suspension originally leaf and the  later model Mk2 Lanchester 14 having coil springs, along with a longer wheelbase and track. In late 1950 a all new Lanchester Fourteen was introduced with a four cylinder 1968cc engine, still using a fluid flywheel with preselector gearbox. These Lanchesters which were built for export were called the Lanchester Leda, and had bodywork built on steel frames, rather than ash for the home market. Production of the Lanchester14 / Leda went on until 1954.

Tyre size for the prewar Lanchester 14 was a cross ply 5.75x16, and today the Blockley 550x16 has been used.

Post war teh wheels were reduced to 15 inch and tyre size for the Lanchester Fourteen / Leda was 6.70x15, and a good radial equivalent Blockley 185VR15 is ideal.
