An interesting illustrated leaflet dealing with the Lancia Omicron chassis has just been issued by Lancia (England), Ltd., Lancia Works, Alperton, London.
Apart from including a brief specification of the chassis, it gives details of one or two remarkable tests carried out with the vehicle, in particular a test which was referred to recently in this journal—that of carrying 8 tons of steel ingots and hauling 5 laden trailers, a total weight in excess of 50 tons.
The Omicron is a thoroughly welldesigned chassis with a six-cylindered monobloc engine and off-set drive to the rear axle, rendering it particularly suitable for low-built passenger bodies, although it has given proof that it is quite substantial enough to deal with the transport of goods, and in this respect it has a capacity of 7i tons.
