Overview

1920 - 1930

This was an assembled car made originally by Charles Alfred West, using a 1498cc Coventry-Simplex 4-cylinder engine, Meadows gearbox, Model T Ford front axle and steering, and Moss or Wrigley rear axle.  Some cars had friction transmission and chain final drive; 2-and 4-seater open bodies were available.  West was said to have orders for 200 cars, but the company was in receivership in 1923.  It was rescued by a new concern named the Surrey Service company, which continued the cars into 1925.  About 80 cars were made, including two with Dorman engines, and then a change was made to Meadows engines.  The new cars were known as Victory models, which was sometimes regarded as a separate make.  The last few years of Surrey are hard to trace, and few cars were probably made after 1927.
