Overview

1952 - 1958

A subsidiary of Vernons football pools, this company made a number of invalid cars.  At first it made Invacars under licence for the Ministry of Health, and in 1952 launched its own design, named the Vi-Car.  Like most of its kind it was a 3-wheeler with single front wheel, and was powered by a 197cc single-cylinder Villiers 2-stroke engine mounted on the offside of the body.  In 1954 the Vi-Car was developed into a 3-wheeler for the general market, which was sold as the Gordon, still with the side-mounted 197cc engine.
