Robinson & Price


1905 - 1906

This company was mainly involved in general engineering and repair work, but they made two ventures into car manufacture.  In 1905 they announced two shaft-driven models with Fafnir engines, a 6 1/2hp single-cylinder and a 10/12hp twin.  Production was minimal and they concentrrated on their regular business until 1913 when they were tempted by the cyclecar boom.  Their contribution had a single-cylinder 6/8hp Coventry-Simplex engine, belt drive to a countershaft and thence by chain to the rear axle.  It had a curious radiator in which the tubes made an inverted vee, meeting at the header tank.  Designed by a Mr Lamb, who was said to have had several years experience with light cars, it was known as the R & P, a name sometimes applied to the earlier cars.
