The Straight Eight is a George Lanchester design and was based on his very successful 6-cylinder design, the 23hp. The Lanchester straight eight was a competitor to the Rolls Royce Phantom

Not many cars were built, the financial crisis took its toll and the Lanchester Motor Company was finally sold to Daimler in 1930. The Lanchester Motor Company is now a dormant company and still owned by Jaguar.

During my ownership it has been in regular use both for holidays and we have participated in various motoring events and shows all over the country. This includes the Lanchester Register rally that has taken place in various locations over the years. The car is a multiple winner of the Lanchester Register Shield.

The Lanchester has an 8-cylinder engine of 4.4litres., with a single overhead camshaft, 4 speed gearbox and a Lanchester worm drive rear axle. The brake drums are 15 inches in diameter and are assisted by a Dewandre brake servo. Inside there is a comprehensive set of instruments which include a Tapley gradient meter. The instrument lighting is unusual for the period and relies on edge lite Perspex for illumination. The rear passengers have a Auster Screen to protect them from the elements.
