Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

Trojan, Ltd., Purley Way, Croydon, Surrey.

THE 25-cwt. forward-control 9-ft. 4-in.-whe.elbase chassis introduced .t.Wo years ago is now the only type -offered by Trojan. It is powered by the Perkins P3/144 three-cylindered oil engine; which, with a capacity of 2.36 litres, develops 41 b.h.p. at 2,400 r.p.m, and 101 lb.-ft. torque at .1,406 r.p.m. •A four-speed synchromesh gearbox is fitted and the rear axle is a three-quarter-floating hypoid unit with a ratio of 4.55 to 1. Points of note on the chassis include independent front suspension by trailing arms and quarter-elliptic leaf springs, and the traditional Trojan cruciform-braced frame.

Seven complete vehicles are shown, in addition to a chassis on which is .mounted the slandard plastics front-end structure. Three vans have metal bodies and one is fitted with roller

shutters at the rear, whilst another has sliding cab doors. The third van, for G. Brazil and Co., Ltd., incorporates embossedaluminium body panelling. A truck cab and an all-metal dropsided body are fitted to the other 25-cwt. goods chassis on view.

A rural bus and two coaches make up the display. All three provide accommodation for 13 passengers, the bus differing mainly from the coach specification in its interior trim. With the exception of the rural bus and the chassis exhibit, all vehicles on this stand are finished in the livery of operators.
