Gnome Nomad


1925 - 1926

This was a late example of a cyclecar, powered by a rear-mounted 343cc Villiers single-cylinder engine, with friction transmission giving four speeds in forward and reverse.  There were no springs as the balloon tyres at a pressure of only 6psi were said to give a comfortable ride.  The integral body and chassis were of steel and plywood.  The original price was £75, but this went up to £100 for the Nomad, which had an electric starter.  Despite two names and addresses in as many years, very few of this design were made.
