A late series LWB Lambda, possibly with English coachbuilder body??

It looks too big for a 2.6 litre 4 cylinder engine to drag about, although there was a LWB version of the Lambda. Iíd have thought DiLambda, 4 litre V-8, with Weymann construction type of coachwork. This model carried on until 1935, the Lambda was deleted in 1931. The 9th Series Lambda could only muster about 70 horses, and had its radiator mounted lower in between the front wheels, with the headlights higher than the corners. The V-8 of the DiLambda produced about 100 bhp.

Some refs for UK-bodied Dilambdas found, with mentions of Weymann and Mulliner. But which Mulliner (HJ, Arthur, or Mulliners (Birmingham)) not specified. One book pic - rear three-quarter view which looks similar shape/proportions, has both door handles at B-pillar, side-mounted spare reaching up to level of high bonnet, and windscreen similarly shallow compared to side windows - captioned as "Mulliner to Weymann principles". But has wires - these solid discs with shiny hubs are rare in Dilambda (or Lambda) pics, whether UK or Italian bodies on whatever body style.

Weymann construction is a generic term for bodies constructed on a wooden frame and using two layers of leather cloth type material separated by a wadding. The reason behind this construction was lightness, the one thing rarely achieved was longevity.
