HRG Cars
HR Godfrey had been the 'G' half of the 'GN' cyclecars produced with Archie Frazer-Nash (the 'N' half). However, their partnership was dissolved in 1922 about the time that British Gregoire gained control of GN. Godfrey got involved in other engineering projects until in 1935 he formed a partnership with Ted Halford and Guy Robins to create HRG. Based around a Meadows 1,496cc engine (like some contemporary Frazer-Nash cars), the little sporting cars, were hand built but very successful in competition. Production continued until 1956.
