Sunbeam 25/30


Another Shaw design, the 25/30 used a 5103cc six cylinder L-head sidevalve engine fed by twin carburettors. It had a wheelbase of 10ft 4in, a gauge (track) of 4ft 4in. and weighed 26cwt. The chassis was ash with steel reinforcing plates. Chain drive was used with the oil bath chain case. Ignition was by magneto, and it continued the variable lift inlet valve system.

As a chassis only it cost 750 pounds, while with the standard touring body it cost 800 pounds.

Approximately 12 were made.

  1. Everyone knows Europe was the cradle for Automobile evolution. And Britain was no exception. How many withstood with the time and how many perished , the list is big But to me the names which always intrigued was the Hillman,Humber,Singer ,Sunbeam and Talbot. Always fascinating and this page too very informative. Just enough for every auto buff.
