JMB

The JMB was first manufactured in Ringwood, Hampshire (UK) in 1933 and was designed by G.H.Jones. The car got its JMB initials from the partners involved with the project that also included R.W.Mason and C.Barrow. The vehicle was powered by a 497cc ohv JAP engine that was mounted at the rear of the vehicle driving the back wheel by a chain; this meant that the front was free for storing luggage. The JMB came as a two or four seater with a claimed top speed of 55 mph. 1934 bodies were fabric covered whilst the bodies of the 1935 versions had metal panelling. Production ceased in 1935. Around 250 vehicles were made but to date only four (and a half) JMB 3-wheelers are known to survive. One of them is pictured below.
