The G Type was an automobile made by Lea-Francis between 1925 and 1927.

It was the company’s attempt at producing a low cost motor car.

The car was built on a chassis similar to the F Type, but with a wheelbase reduced by 9inches. It shared the F Type's three-speed gearbox coupled to a 1247cc Meadows 4EB engine which produced 19bhp.

Bodies were all two-seater tourers with a dickey seat, built mostly by Robinson and then Cross & Ellis. As standard the G Type was supplied in saxe blue body work with plain blue leather upholstery. In 1926 the G Type sold for £210.

It is thought 122 G Types were built and the remains of one or two may have survived.
