Overview

1902 - 1905

This company was said to be building a 24hp racing car for the 1902 Bexhill Speed Trials, but it did not appear.  However, another racing car with a 40hp 4-cylinder Buchet engine, with chain drive was announced at the end of 1902.  It was built to order for W.G.Crombie, who intended to enter it for the Nice Speed Trials. 

In 1903 General made a light tradesman's delivery van called the G.M.C. This was powered by a 4 1/2hp single-cylinder engine, possibly a Bradbury and later in the year, after they had moved to Mitcham, light cars with 6 1/2hp Aster or 12hp Buchet engines.  The 1904 light car had a spiral radiator and shaft drive.  Some larger cars with 30hp Simms and 40hp Buchet engines were made in 1905.
