Airline Coupé Engine and Chassis


The engines (as well as the majority of the chassis and fittings) were the same between the Airline Coupe and the standard 2-seater and 4-seater models of the same car.  Only the firewall and petrol tank varied from the standard model.

A curious washer was found on both sides of my PB Airline. On the front hanger pin for the rear springs, between the castellated nut and the spring eye, the following washer was used. Why the rectangular section on the washer? Was this used to add additional support to the body? The rectangular section rests just under the body mounting bracket.
