Adamson Car

The Adamson was an English car manufactured in Enfield, Middlesex, from 1912 to 1925. It was designed by Reginald Barton Adamson at the premises of the family haulage contract business.

The first car of 1912 was a small two seater bullnosed cyclecar and had a 1,099 cc twin cylinder or 1,074 cc four cylinder engine made by Alpha of Coventry driving the rear wheels via a three speed and reverse gearbox and a countershaft from which two V-belts went to the rear wheels. The engine could be started from the driving seat using a mechanical linkage. The channel section steel chassis was placed under the axles with suspension by semi-elliptic leaf springs. This arrangement allowed the car to have a low, sporting appearance. In 1914 the option of a larger four cylinder version was added. A new model was announced in 1916 with 1330cc four cylinder engine but few if any reached the public before car production ceased later that year.
