Four-cylinder 22hp petrol engine

Introduced in 1911 as one of three new models launched by Commer Cars, the WP3 was the smallest of these. Built to carry just 14-seats.
This model is powered by a 22hp 4-cylinder Commer petrol engine. Transmission is via a leather-lined cone clutch, through a 3-speed pre-selector gearbox, the gear change lever being mounted on the steering column. Final drive from the jackshaft to the rear wheels is by enclosed chains, whilst the brakes are of the mechanically operated type.
Production of the WP3 ended in 1914, upon the commencement of World War I.
