1904 - 1906

Bergius Car & Engine Co., Glasgow

The Kelvin had a 3052cc 16hp 4-cylinder engine and shaft drive.  It was available with solid, 'semi-solid' or pneumatic tyres, and was equipped originally with a rear-entrance tonneau body, then later with a side entrance.  All components, including the bodywork, were made in a factory formerly occupied by Albion.  Although only 14 Kelvins were made, the company had an eye on the export market, and published a catalogue in Spanish.  The engine was later developed into a marine unit, running on petrol or paraffin - they were installed in many fishing boats.  As a marine engine maufacturer Bergius were active at least up to the late 1960s.
