Fragments on forgotten makes

No. 33-The Bean. The Bean Car Club may not thank me for calling the Bean a "forgotten make" but I am sure they will know what I mean! It was a make intended to be built in mass-produced quantities but which never really made the grade. A. Harper, Sons & Bean Ltd. was a company, registered in 1907, which supplied the growing motor industry with stampings, castings and forgings from Dudley,...

"Automobile Design: Great Designers And Their Work." Edited by Ronald Barker and Anthony Harding. 374 pp. 10 in. x 6 1/4 in. (David & Charles, South Devon House, Newton Abbot, Devon. £4 4s.)

THE HOME OF CRAFTMANSHIP THE BUILDING OF ROLLS-ROYCE CARS. BEHIND an institution as famous as that of the Derby works of RollsRoyce one always finds an interesting history. Even to deal briefly with the present-day routine of manufacture of the world-renowned cars requires a lengthy article, so nothing more than an outline of the foundation of the firm can be given here, leaving the sporting and...

Rolls-Royce: The Next Step?

Paying attention only because the piece was by a well-known motoring writer of long standing, I read recently that, although Rolls-Royce sales are up (even in the ISA, where the financial crash might have been expected to have had dire effects on the buying of European luxury cars), further action might soon be required if the increase is to be maintained.

The American Rolls-Royces R-R’s early Stateside history is intriguing and its reputation disputed I have no compunction about discussing Rolls-Royces, those ‘Best Cars in the World’, in Motor Sport, because those who regard them as non-sports cars have overlooked the Derby Bentleys, which, for example, gave Eddie Hall very impressive results in the Ards TT races, etc. Those same people may have...

The Rolls-Royce Camargue

All that glitters . . ? A fortune of £29,250 will buy an attractive detached house standing in its own grounds within the London commuter belt. It could even buy you a real Jaguar D-type plus an XJ12, plus one of the all black, last fifty V12 E-types to leave Jaguar's Allesley factory. Different tastes might select a fixed-head Rolls-Royce or Bentley Corniche plus a Jensen Interceptor Convertible...

How the New Rover 3500 is Made

The Editor visits British Leyland's £31-million factory at Solihull I was glad to avail myself of the GMW's expedition to the new Rover factory at Solihull last month, because this is a very significant contribution to Britain's hoped-for future prosperity. I had tried to look over this fine new factory previously, when testing the then-brand-new V8 Rover 3500, but there was nothing doing. There...
