An entirely distinct system of rear springing was one of the outstanding features of the Cameron Six made by The Cameron Motors Corp. The rear springs were cantilever with the usual pivot point on the frame side a little back of the front end of the spring. However, instead of attaching the extreme front end by a shackle there was an adjustable attachment by which the spring end can be drawn up or lowered. In this way the owner could vary the strength to suit conditions of loading or road surface.
