1936 - 1938

Named after its makers, Leith and Huddart, this was a short-lived Anglo-American hybrid which used a Ford V8 engine and gearbox in an English chassis with Bugatti-type rear suspension.  The bodies were simple open 2-and 4-seater sports, and the car had the appearance of a scaled up Morgan 4-4.  A saloon was listed in 1938, but it is not certain that any were made, any more than the smaller Leidart with supercharged Ford 10 engine.  It is possible only one Leidart was built, the 2-seater sports which featured in press announcements.
