1920 - 1921
Although it was announced in late 1919, it does not seem that even a prototype Payze was running before the spring of 1920. Designed by Captain A. Payze, it was a conventional light car powered by a 1490cc 4-cylinder Coventry-Simplex engine, with Moss gearbox and a 3/4-seater cloverleaf body. It had a Rolls-Royce type radiator and was advertised as 'the light car with the comfort of a limousine and the simplicity of a scooter'. They also went in for punning advertising, telling potential customers 'It Payze you to run this car'. Few people took this advice, though, and total production has been estimated at between 15 and 20 cars.
