Lea-Francis Leaf-Lynx, is to mark the return of an old established firm. It appeared at the 1960 Earls Court Motor Show. Occasional, four-seater roadster is powered by a 2 ½ -litre Ford engine modified to develop 107 bhp at 4500 rpm and featuring a four-speed synchromesh gearbox and disc brakes all round. The unusual 'torpedo' style bodywork is all-steel apart from aluminium doors, bonnet and boot lid. Only a few prototypes were ever made and the car never reached production.
MR. K. B. BENFIELD, newly appointed chairman and joint managing director of Lea-Francis Cars, Ltd., stated last week that there was every likelihood of Lea-Francis returning to the field of car manufacture. It would not be for "two or three years," because a period of concentration on Ministry and subcontract work was necessary to stabilize the company's financial position. Mr. Benfield's appointment followed a shareholders' vote of "no confidence" in the board as previously constituted. On the new board are Ald. H. Weston, Mr. C. Payne and Mr. R. Bowden.
