 This small motor car from 1908 was made by Phoenix Motors, Limited of Blundell Street, Caledonian Road, North London. I can find very little about this company, and it is likely this example, seen at the Crich Tramway Museum's Edwardian weekend in July 2012 is a very rare if not unique survivor

  1. Thank you for these photographs. I have a record and photograph of such a car owned by a William Ying in Maryborough, Victoria, Australia. The remains of this were sold in a dispersal sale c1964.
