Overview

1921 - 1926

Like the Owen Magnetic and Crown Magnetic, this car used the Entz magnetic transmission, but with smaller engines.  In 1922 two models were listed, both with Burt-McCollum sleeve-valve units, a 2624cc four and a 5228cc straight 8.  The smaller car was shown at Olympia in 1921, but not the larger which may never have been built.  A chassis price of £1200 was quoted, even the smaller Magnetics were not cheap, ranging from £750 for a chassis to £1100 for a 2-door saloon.  Magnetics were shown regularly at Olympia until 1925, but they did not make much impact on the market, though at least one was offered secondhand.
