The Gordon-Keeble had two seperate fuel tanks, both 11 gallons in capacity, and each with a separate filler. There were two reversing lamps set beneath the bumper.
A square-section de Dion tube was located by a transverse Watts linkage and parallel radius arms. Telescopic dampers had driver-controlled adjustment, and the final drive unit sat in four flexible mountings.
Behind were two thermostatically controlled electric fans, twin brake servos, with screenwash reservoir between them. The cross-flow radiator has a separate header tank. To extract the battery, the member carrying the fans needed to be unbolted at one end and hinged upwards.
