Books Info:

SS  free pdf Following on from his book S.S.I and S.S.II Cars, Allan Crouch details the models that succeeded them: the 11/2 and 21/2 Litre of 1936-37, the SS100 sports car, the11/2, 21/2 and 31/2 Litre of 1938-48, and the Mark V of 1948-51. Apart from the 11/2 Litres, what was common to these cars was the six-cylinder engine, based on a Standard sidevalve unit for which Harry Weslake designed an overhead-valve cylinder head giving very respectable power outputs. Combined with flowing body styling inspired by William Lyons himself, the result was some strikingly attractive and desirable cars, at extraordinarily keen prices. Here the development and evolution of the range are described, complete with competition history, production figures and specifications, all accompanied by 250 colour photographs and 80 black-and-white images from the archives.

About Allan Crouch

Allan Crouch studied Sciences at Reading University and then pursued a career as a production engineer in the telecommunications industry in Brazil and the UK. Now retired, he is the Registrar for SS cars for the Jaguar Drivers Club, and has expanded the register to include all the known cars worldwide by incorporating the major overseas registers in the USA, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and continental Europe. He is a volunteer archivist for the Jaguar Heritage, computerizing all the factory sales and orders ledgers for pushrod-engined cars from the early S.S.I and S.S.II to the Jaguar Mk V. In 1979 he found and acquired a rundown and partially dismantled 1948 Jaguar 21 2-litre drophead coup?, which he set about restoring and which has since won a number of Concours competitions."
