Further details and special features

James Young did not succeed in producing the cars on profit and stopped production after 35 cars.



At the front and rear can't be discovered that it deals with a 2-door saloon. James Young rebuilt a 4-door saloon to a 2-door saloon and left the front and rear untouched. Yet many things have changed: the panelling of the rear sides, the C-pillar, longer doors, other side windows, the place of the B-pillar, the interior, and so on.
