LAD (car)

LAD was a British car brand that was from 1913 to 1914 and from 1923 to 1926 on the market.

Originally, the cars were brought out in 1913 by the Oakleigh Motor Company in West Dulwich ( London). It was a Cyclecar. Usually, it was provided with a single-seat construction, but there were also some two-seater. The car was powered by a single cylinder engine of the Stag Company, whose force was led by a chain to the rear wheels. There was no gear and thus only one forward gear. The original price was 60 pounds sterling. With the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 the production was discontinued.

1923, the production of the car was resumed, from the LAD Productions Ltd.. in Farnham ( Surrey ). For the original model, there was also a version with a 350 cc V2 engine. The original price was now 75 pounds. But "real" cars, such as the Austin 7 for the price of 165 pounds, took the cyclecars each market opportunity and the company was closed in 1926.
