Craig-Dorwald

Overview

This company was better known for marine engines than for cars. In 1904 they built an 18.3 litre 150bhp V12 engine, probably the world’s first 12-cylinder unit. It was originally intended for a Russian airship, and was later put into a yacht in Hong Kong. Cars were made to special order, and were individually designed and built. The first was a light car with single-cylinder engine and single speed, made in 1902, followed by a 10hp 2-cylinder commercial traveller’s car in 1903. Other models used 8hp single, 18hp twin and 24hp or 50hp 4-cylinder engines. There was no more than12 cars made.
