Kingsbury Junior

Overview

1919 - 1922

The company had made Le Rhone aero engines during the war, and turned to car manufacture to keep their workforce employed.  It was a typical light car unusual only in the origin of its engine.  The 1021cc flat-twin unit was a Koh-i-Noor made in Scotland by Kennedy Motor Co. who also built the Rob Roy car.  The gearbox, pedals and levers came from the same source and the final drive was by shaft to a bevel rear axle.  Kingsbury went into liquidation in May 1921, but stock continued to be sold into 1922.  The following year the factory became the home of Vanden Plas coachworks.
