One of the oldest names in the Coventry motor industry and one that had close parallels with Riley and Alvis, was Lea-Francis. This Lea-Francis Fourteen is interesting being almost the final one produced and consequently has the latest specification including large fully hydraulic brakes and re-circulatory ball steering. It was known to have been in the UK up until 1973, but has recently returned from California. It is presently running (retaining its original engine), but would benefit from restoration.
The spares and service department of Lea-Francis was taken over by A.B. Price of Studley, Warwickshire who are able to supply any spares and advice if required.
