The Adams Post


Being a former apprentice of the Igranic Electric Company, the article Adams Car (August, 1990) bought back memories. In about 1964 the company, then known as Brookhurst Igranic, purchased a single-cylinder Adams car and rebuilt it using apprentices.

If my memory serves me right this had no radiator as such and was eventually put on loan to the Shuttleworth Museum. It was in 1913 that the company changed its name to the Igranic Electric Co Ltd. I have a photograph of the company at that time together with a 4-cylinder side-valve 16hp Adams last known in Australia in 1973. Eventually the company became known as Cutle-Homman in the mid 1970s.
