Dellow Models - Mark 5

This was the last and arguably the best model produced by Dellow Motors before the original company was sold. The design was based on the Lightweight although it was productionised with styling changes to the nose and rear producing a slightly more stylish look.

They looked different to all the previous models and they behaved differently to their more upright predecessors. They were not trials cars but they were more comfortable & stylish and designed for sprints, hill climbs and driving tests. The all up weight of a MkV is 1064lbs. with a power output of 36bhp, giving a power to weight ratio of 76bhp/ton compared to the Mkll at 54bhp/ton. As a comparison the MG TD with 54bhp and a weight of 1932 lbs has 63bhp/ton.
