Overview

1919 - 1921

The Mascotte was one of many attempts to cater for the burgeoning light car market, which was eventually dominated by William Morris and, to a lesser extent, Clyno.  In 1919 at the Olympia Show it was described as 'the only entirely new light car to be seen at the show', but it was a conventional car powered by a 1496cc Dorman 4MV 4-cylinder engine, with 3-speed gearbox and worm drive.  The 2/3 seater body was made by Mascotte in their small factory in Kensal Road.  Only 11 Dormain engines were bought by Mascotte then they turned to the Belgian-built Peters engine in two sizes, 1645 and 1820cc.  Probably not many of these were bought either, and Mascotte was out of business before the end of 1921.  Dorman records show that one further engine was delivered in 1924, probably a replacement unit rather than for an attempted revival.
