The Cardway car was very much a private affair.

Colonel Frederick Cardway had previously worked in the automotive business and had sold Packard and Pierce-Arrow cars to overseas buyers and it is likely that his intention was to sell his right-hand drive car overseas too. It is not known who, if anyone, helped Colonel Cardway with the design of his car, which was a 40 hp six-cylinder touring car offered in two models.

Five or six Cardway cars were built before the venture ceased in 1924.

Emblem

The Cardway radiator emblem shown above is extremely rare.
