1949-1957 Dellow MkI-V specifications Classic and Performance Car

Produced in Alvechurch, Birmingham, these sporting roadsters were built for racing. Basically a Trial car that went through a series of evolutions which started out based on an Austin Seven special before moving to a bespoke lightweight A-frame chassis powered by a 1172cc Ford Ten engine. It proved a winning formula thanks to rearward weight bias, and to this day, Dellows still star in these events. Considering their simple, but clever, construction and the plug-in nature of their engines, the survival rate is high, and the fan base is huge.
