Guy Album

Details

Guy was one of the great names in British commercial vehicle history. The marque lasted for over 60 years before disappearing into the British Leyland abyss. When we think of Guy vehicles, we usually mean lorries or buses, but few enthusiasts today realise that in the 1920s Guy also made cars. It should not be such a surprise, however, as Sydney Guy was previously works manager at Sunbeam, a company which made both cars and commercial vehicles. Guy cars were too expensive, however, so production ceased in 1925, though Guy then took over the neighbouring Star Motor Co, and made Star cars until 1932. When the Star project also turned out to be unprofitable, Guy gave up on car manufacture and turned to military vehicle production in the mid-1930s and after the war Guy took over Sunbeam trolleybus production. In this publication we tell the story of Guy Motors, from its optimistic birth before the Great War, to its slow death under British Leyland ownership.
