1950 Lea-Francis ad

Richard Henry Lea and Graham Inglesby Francis started their cycle manufacturing business in Coventry in 1895, began car manufacture in 1903 and motorcycles in 1911. Lea-Francis built cars under licence for the Singer company. In 1919 they started to build their own cars from bought-in components.

A total of almost 10,000 Lea-Francis vehicles were made until production ceased in 1962.
