Overview

1934 - 1936

The Squire was conceived by a young Englishman, Adrian Morgan Squire, who had worked out the basic design of the car, even issuing a 6-page catalogue, while still at school.  In 1931, at the age of 21 he set up Squire Motors Ltd., a small company which sold, repaired and tuned sports cars and in 1934 incorporated a separate company, the Squire Car Manufacturing Co., to build his dream car.  Announced in September 1934, it was a low-slung 2-seater sports car powered by a twin-ohc supercharged 1496cc Anazi R1 engine.  Two wheelbases were offered, for 2- or 4-seater bodies, which were to be open or drop-head coupes by Vanden Plas.  There was nothing against the Squire but its price.  This was £1220 for a Vanden Plas 2-seater, about double the cost of a comtemporary Aston Martin or Frazer Nash, but not enough to keep the firm going.
