Black Prince Car manufacturer
The Black Prince was a British 4 wheeled cyclecar made in small numbers in 1920 by Black Prince Motors of Barnard Castle, Durham.
The car was designed by H. G. Wright and was available with either a single or twin cylinder Union air-cooled engine rated at 2.75 horse power. Drive was through a two-speed belt system although gear transmission was an option.
Both the open body and the chassis were made of wood. The flexibility of this was used as suspension.1919 Another £100 proposition is the Black Prince runabout, a small four-wheeler embodying several features which depart from the conventional. The springing is by coil springs, and the power is provided by two Union two-stroke engines having a. total capacity of 584 c.c. These are placed side by side in a vertical position, and depend upon a 180 degree magneto for ignition. An epicyclic two-speed gear is fitted at one end of a countershaft, at the other end of which is the pulley for the final single belt drive. The frame and body are made in one, and the total weight is said to be tinder 3 cwt. The manufacturers are Black Prince Motors, Ltd., Barnard Castle, Co. Durham
