Information about Belsize

Belsize Motors, an emblem of British automotive history, was founded in 1901 in Manchester, England. The company swiftly established itself as a pioneer in the nascent car industry with the introduction of the Belsize 15/20 HP in 1906. This model, celebrated for its robust engineering and reliability, set the stage for the brand’s reputation during the early 20th century.

The founders, Marshall & Company of Clayton, leveraged their experience in bicycle manufacturing to craft automobiles that were not only innovative but also accessible, embodying the spirit of the Edwardian era’s motoring enthusiasm. As the company evolved, it expanded its range, focusing on mid-sized cars that appealed to a broad segment of the market.

In its prime, Belsize Motors was synonymous with durability and British engineering excellence. However, like many of its contemporaries, the company could not withstand the economic pressures of the post-World War I era, leading to its closure in 1925. Today, Belsize Motors is remembered for its significant contributions to the automotive industry and remains a fascinating chapter in the history of British motoring, often celebrated by vintage car enthusiasts for its pioneering spirit and the enduring legacy of its vehicles.
