Dual Purpose


Concealed Hood

With coachwork specifically designed for the 1938 London Motor show, the Lancefield Concealed Hood is an excellent dual-purpose model meeting the requirements of those who require a closed four seater whilst also allowing them to enjoy the thrill of driving an open car of breathtaking appearance and outstanding performance.

The wide doors allow easy access to both front and rear seats. Large winding windows and narrow screen pillars give maximum visibility. The hood is readily and unobtrusively folded into a concealed compartment within the coachwork at the rear; with the hood fully erected the car is weather proof, whilst it is possible to fold back the front section only; leaving the rear seats protected. The body may be painted and trimmed in a wide range of colours and leathers.

Production is limited to 25 cars.
