Overview

The Albert was a high quality British automobile manufactured in Vauxhall between 1920 and 1924. The car was powered by a proprietary 1495 cc ohv engine made by Gwynne and boasted a radiator similar to that of the Rolls-Royce. The body was mainly made of aluminium and most were 4 seat tourers.

The company that built the Albert, Adam Grimaldi & Co., was taken over by Gwynne of Chiswick in 1920 after about 250 cars were made.  Gwynne then made about 1450 more of the original design.  In 1923 the engine was enlarged to 1944 cc, front wheel brakes were fitted and the name changed to Gwynne-Albert.  About another 200 were built with the last ones being sold possibly as late as 1929.
