of Letchworth (corner of Pixmore Avenue and Dunhams Lane)

1928 Company formed to acquire the rights from Fejes Patents Syndicate and to produce 6,000 Ascot cars per annum. [1]

The Ascot was an English automobile, the brainchild of Cyril Pullin (who also produced Ascot Pullin motorcycles at the same time), that was manufactured between 1928 and 1930 in Letchworth, Hertfordshire. The factory had previously been used by Phoenix. The car was based largely on the Hungarian Fejes, with chassis and 10hp engine assembled from welded steel pressings. It never went into production.

A larger car, the Ascot Gold Cup Six, with a 2,423 cc six cylinder engine possibly made by Continental, 3 speed gearbox and servo brakes did become a reality and a few production cars were made. It was advertised as being available as a two seat sports, coupé or fabric saloon.
