Drive System:

It might have been the company’s first post-war car, but underneath the Lancaster’s skin beat the heart of a pre-war car. Despite that, it can justifiably be described as Britain’s first all-new post-war car, appearing on the market the same week hostilities ceased in Europe. A two-litre saloon might not have been groundbreaking, but with torsion bar suspension, hydromechanical brakes and a four-speed all-synchromesh gearbox it was comfortable and easy to drive. Dignified and refined it might have been, but it suffered badly from rust.
