The 6hp was one of the last Vauxhall models to be built with the tiller steering system and this was superseded by wheel steering at the end of 1904.
Similar to the previous model, the 6hp had an integrated chassis and body. The main differences between the 5hp and 6hp models was the inclusion of a reverse gear, and the change from wire to wooden artillery wheels. This made the later model slightly heavier and as a result the single cylinder engine needed to be a little bit bigger, at 1029cc.
Produced at the original South London factory for Vauxhall, this 6hp was one of the 70 cars produced by the company during 1904 and remains a regular participant in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run.
