Overview

1922 - 1926

The Westcar was offered with a conventional 1496cc 11.9hp 4-cylinder Dorman engine, 3-(later 4-)speed Meadows gearbox and shaft drive to a Moss spiral bevel rear axle, but its background was unusual.  It was built on a large country estate, Strode Park in Kent.  It was assembled in outbuildings of the big house and wood for the bodies came from the estate as well, while the brackets were made by the local blacksmith.  The Westcar was unable to compete with mass-produced cars in the same class and discontinued production after fewer than 100 were made.
