Why not a Twelve, please? Around 1974, I rescued one of sunbar's split rear window, fastback Flying Twelves (Blackburn reg'd, 1936/37). Fastback style common to 12 to 20hp models at that time.
Uncle had a post-war 12 in 1959-61 (EBL 442) which he traded for a Singer Gazelle. His car used to outpace father's Series II Minor (not difficult). And I rescued a 1947 Twelve from Basildon around 1977, which looked identical to both LBH 28 here and the Twelve of Uncle Dennis, ie. conventional drop-down boot lid.

Toss of a coin for Fourteen. Post war a revised Twelve (12CD) and Fourteen (14CD) had the same body, both were about 3" wider than the 1939 models and the fastback was no longer sold only the larger booted version. No production numbers found for each but would probably have been low compared with the Eight.

For both the new Twelve and Fourteen the doors were hinged from the centre pillars, heavier rounded section bumpers and plain bonnet sides without louvres. The Flying designation was dropped after the war so just Twelve and Fourteen. Production ended in 1948 so one of the last.

Eight, post-war 53099.

Twelve, 9959.

Fourteen, 22229.

Both the larger cars were not produced in this exact form prewar, so it is probably safe to infer that the figures apply to post-war cars. The horsepower tax was abolished in 1948, and replaced by a flat rate, so possibly the Fourteen sold better than the Twelve in anticipation of this happening. In those days the decision to do such a thing might have been advised early since the time needed to make the necessary paperwork changes would be longer, and the budget, where such things were announced, was each March/April.

In 1948-1952, 184799 Vanguards were built, so it seems the capacity was available.
