The C-Type was a car made by Rochdale between 1955 and 1961. Only 30 cars were made and only 2 are known to survive.
The C-Type came on the market in 1955. It was sold as a standard package without any internal framework or bulkheads.
The shell was a one-piece unit which could easily be fitted to a 7ft 6in chassis although it could be modified to fit a longer chassis if needed. The styling was much like that of the Aston Martin DB3S.
There was no passenger door cut in the body as standard and the builder also had to cut the opening for the grille. The bonnet and bootlid were supplied cut. The C-Type's aerodynamic shape made it good for racing.
The C-Type was priced at £75.
