History of the Vauxhall 14HP
Offside View Vauxhall 14 HP Engine
Vauxhall's 14hp history didn't begin until May 1933, with the introduction of The Light Six, which was also available in a cheaper 12hp version. The automobile was an instant success, particularly the bigger 14hp variant, and within a short period of time, Vauxhall was challenging the established manufacturers for sales supremacy in the 14hp segment of the British market, a good performance for a first try. However, Vauxhall did not stop there; in 1935, the Light Six was the first British automobile to be equipped with a synchromesh transmission, and the 14hp sales advantage was maintained.
In 1937, the Vauxhall 14hp included 6 phase carburation, which allowed owners to get 30mpg in regular driving, making the Vauxhall the most efficient 14hp car available - the sales surge continued. Only in 1937 did the smaller engine Vauxhall 12hp outsell the 14hp version, and despite having so many benefits and distinctive characteristics, the 14hp Vauxhall was usually less expensive than most of its rivals - local or foreign.
