Despite being better known for its motorcycles British firm AJS did venture into light-car manufacture during the early 1930's with its 9 HP model.
The AJS 9 HP used a 1018cc Coventry-Climax side-valve engine coupled to a three speed gearbox. Buyers could choose between open two seater, saloon or special coachbuilt bodies. The 9 HP saloon featured "big car luxuries" such as map pockets, interior lights and an ash tray!
Sadly the 9 HP could not compete with stiff competition from makes such as Rover, Morris and Austin. Production ended in 1932.
