The Carden Sports was designed and built by Carden Engineering in England.
They produced four wheel cyclecars from 1913-25. John Carden was a prolific designer who went on to work on tanks.
The design of his early cyclecars and factory were sold to Ward and Avey Ltd. in 1916 and the car renamed the AV, production continued until 1924.
It is thought production of AV cars may have reached 1000.
Carden went on to design two new cyclecars, he sold the design of the first to Tamplin in 1919 and this the second to Arnott and Harrison in 1922 who marketed the car as The New Carden until 1925.
