Overview

1900-1913

On the last day of 1899 two former Arrol-Johnston staff, T Blackwood Murray and Norman Fulton, established the Albion Motor Co in Glasgow. The first cars produced appeared to draw their inspiration from both Arrol-Johnston and early American practice, with a horizontally-opposed engine mounted amidships, central chain drive, tiller steering, large diameter wheels with solid tyres, and overall were rather like a horse-drawn buggy in appearance, though rather more rugged.

Beyond the adoption of wheel steering for 1902, cars of the original pattern remained in production until the middle of 1904 when a model with a front-mounted vertical two-cylinder engine was introduced that enjoyed a nine-year production run.

Commercial vehicles were introduced before the Great War and Albion lorries became a familiar sight on the road and remained in production until 1972.
