1912 Crouch Carette

The Crouch Carette was a three-wheeled cyclecar produced between 1912 and 1913. The car was later available as a four-wheeled version.

The cars were fitted with a side-valve, water-cooled Crouch V-twin engine with a capacity of 740cc mounted behind the seats. It was of unconventional appearance with a low, wide radiator. The chassis frame was of ash with metal armouring and the drive was to the single rear wheel via a three-speed gearbox and chain.

It cost around a £100 and was claimed to be capable of reaching speeds of 35 mph (56 km/h) and having a fuel consumption of 50 miles per imperial gallon.
