The 1951 Lea-Francis Fourteen Four-Light was powered by an overhead cam four-cylinder engine that displaced 107.8 cubic-inches.

Total production for all Lea-Francis models in 1951 reached nearly 600.

This maroon colored Shooting Brake Estate Woody has a black leather top, tan leather interior and a wood body. There are large Lucas headlights complemented by a pair of Lucas 'flame thrower' driving lights. It has a British registration plate and an original registration disc, dated December 1974. This example spent part of its life in the Coventry Transport Museum.

In 2010 the car was offered for sale at the Exceptional Motorcars and Automobilia presented by Bonhams. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $22,230 inclusive of buyer's premium.
