Following the success and re-introduction after the First World War of the 30/98 (the first UK production car to reach 100 mph) and the 23/60 models, Vauxhall Motors Ltd introduced the 14/40 ‘M’ series in late 1921, designed by Clarence King who had replaced Lawrence Pommeroy as Vauxhall’s chief designer, which is noticeable as the design of all these three models is very similar. The ‘M’ series was replaced in 1924 by the improved ‘LM’ series which benefited from a more powerful (2297cc) engine, four speed gearbox and four wheel braking.
This car was produced in 1925 just prior to Vauxhall Motors being taken over by the American giant ‘General Motors, so this is a true Vauxhall in every way. Its chassis number is LM 2614 and has the matching engine number of LM2615. It was extensively restored in the early 2000’s and in the last two or three years the magneto, carburettor and dynamo have been overhauled, new brake pads where necessary, and a new silencer. It is in extremely good order and performs very well (even the clock keeps good time provided you remember to keep it wound up!!). Its top speed is around 55 - 57 mph and a comfortable cruising speed is around 50 mph and most hills can be taken in top gear with comparative ease; fuel consumption is approximately 25 mpg. There is a copy of the original workshop manual and instruction book.
It has a complete set of all-weather side screens and also a rear ‘auster’ fold down windscreen; under the bonnet will be found a set of original tools including a jack, oil can, starting handle and pulley, neatly stored. Extensive documentation in respect of the work carried out on the car is provided.
An excellent and indeed beautiful car and is being sold very reluctantly due to my age which seems to increase exponentially!!
