Arthur Gent's book 'Francis Barnett - The Complete Story' is readily available and will tell you all you need to know.

Cruiser 68 (1954) was the first of the post war Cruisers with the Villiers 1H engine.

Falcon 74 (1956-57) was the last 8E engined Falcon.

Falcon 81 (1958-1959) was the final Villiers engined Falcon with the 10E engine.
