Beggs was a manufacturer of horsedrawn vehicles with a speciality for elaborately carved circus wagons. The Beggs Motor Car Company was set up in 1919 and production began in 1920. The Beggs Six was a 56 hp six-cylinder car and was offered in touring and roadster body styles. Other body styles were available from 1921.

Production of Beggs cars was slow and the Company ceased operations in 1923 after making 225 cars, the last 74 of which were made in 1922 and 1923 for export only.
