The first 'F' types were called '12/70 Magnas' and were only retrospectively known as
'F1s' after the introduction of the 'F3s' that shared the mechanical improvements
of the 'F2' (e.g. the 12" brakes and the extra cooling pipe from the radiator) but not the
2-seater body.
Some 'F1s' may have been modified by the factory to 'F3' specification later, but 'F1s'
originally had 8" brakes and either the Tourer and Salonette bodies as fitted to the
'D' type Midgets or were supplied in chassis form for special bodies to be fitted.
Quite a few 'F1s' have anachronistically been rebuilt as 'F2' replicas.
