Re: Value of 1912 14hp Colonial Argyll

Hi Robert
in reply to Robert Gibson Value of 1912 14hp Colonial Argyll



Argylls strangely have not a great following in Scotland although I know of five here (in Scotland). I am rebbuilding two at the moment and if you want to send me some photos I will attempt to advise.

Cheers

My grandfather, George Andrew, who was resident in Aberdeenshire in the 1901 Census, delivered a motor car from Scotland ( I am sure the Glasgow area) to a Mr Cunningham of The Abbey, Penally, Pembrokeshire, Wales, I think in about 1902. Read More...

Acme gas engine and Argyll

G'day, Nyal Chivell here from Australia.

We've got an Acme gas engine in our collection of 250 old engines and after much research it appears to be the only one in the country. With the help of our friend, the late Jim Dancer of England he too tried to find out information about it. He was unsuccessful.



After reading about the Argyll company I noticed a reference to the Acme company of 1881 in your history. Our engine is a good runner, of about 3 hp, single flywheel, open crank, tank cooled and fitted with an up-draught carby. If you have any info on the company or know where we could look it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
