The Singer Tourer was launched by Singer Motor Company in 1939 as an open version of their Bantam saloon.  The 4AD was the last version of the 4A models that was powered by a 1497 cc engine from the SM saloon, which produced 58 horsepower. This slight increase in horsepower over previous versions was attained by fitting the engine with twin carburetors. This produced a top speed of 73 mph and a 0-60 mph of 23.6 seconds.  Although the chassis was virtually unchanged from the previous version, the brakes were changed from purely mechanical to a hydraulic/mechanical hybrid system.  From its creation in 1951 through the end of its production in 1955 there were 3440 AD models built.


  • The 4AD Roadster/Tourer was produced between 1951 and 1955 by the Singer Motor Company, which started production in 1939
