Wigan-Barlow

Overview

1922 - 1923

The Wigan-Barlow barely went beyond the prototype stage.  It was a light car powered by either a 1368cc Coventry-Simplex or 1496cc Meadows engine, with rear axle by Wrigley.  In late 1922 a consulting engineer, F. Carey, designed a sports model for Wigan-Barlow, with 1795cc Meadows engine, sold as the 11/40 sports.  It was better-looking than the touring models, with a polished aluminium body and similar appearance to  the 12/50 Alvis.  Unfortunately it appeared too late and the company was in the hands of a receiver by October, so were not allowed to occupy the stand they had booked at the Olympia Show.
