Birmingham Motors Ltd was formed in 1921 and a factory was acquired in Peterborough, Ontario with the intention of building the Birmingham car in Canada, as well as in the US. In the event, no Birmingham cars were built in Canada.
In June 1923 the charges made against the Birmingham backers were thrown out of court but it was too late and financial support for the Birmingham was not found. The Birmingham was finished by the end of 1923 after a total production of about 50 cars.
The Birmingham radiator emblem shown above is extremely rare.
