The grand-sounding C.F.B. Car Syndicate may have made no more than one car; certainly there was no serious production. It was a cyclecar powered by a 8hp air-cooled V-twin 1078cc Precision engine, driving through a friction transmission in which the driven disc slid up and down a cone, rather than across the face of another disc, as was more usual . From the disc, transmission was by bevel gears to a countershaft, and then by belts to the rear wheels. The frame was made of reinforced ash. The initials were those of Charles F. Beauvais who made another cyclecar, the Bow-V-Car in the same district and later became well known as the stylist for Avon bodies which transformed the appearance of Crossley and Standard cars in the 1930s.
