Invicta Cars
The Invicta car company was an on, off, on company from 1925 until about 1950. Founded by Noel Macklin at Chobham, Surrey in 1925 the first car used a Meadows 2½-litre ohc 6-cylinder engine in a car that was designed to have performance but also be docile and easy to drive. This car was upgraded to 3-litre in 1926 and a 4½-litre car was launched in 1928 still with a Meadows engine. Invicta cars ceased production around 1935 and Noel Macklin started up Railton from the Chobham works. In 1946 the 'Invicta' was dusted off and stuck onto an extraordinary car that was only connected to the original Invicta company by also employing designer W G J Watson. This Invicta company was absorbed by AFN Ltd in 1950 and there have been attempts to produce vehicles under that name again.

Noel Macklin built a prototype car using a 2-litre Coventry-Climax engine, but when his project received backing from the Lyle family (of Tate & Lyle Sugar), he quickly switched to a Meadows engine. Invicta cars were quite expensive, and were only supplied as chassis for the customer to have a body coachbuilt; this one is by Cadogan, others were supplied by Carbodies and Vanden-Plas
