All-British

The All-British was a British automobile built at Bridgeton, Glasgow from 1906 to 1908. The company was founded by George Johnston, formerly of Arrol-Johnston, primarily for the manufacture a 54hp eight-cylinder car with its cylinders arranged as two parallel fours; the pistons were actuated by two rocking beams which were driven by connecting rods from a normal four-throw crank. The unit was more complex than was necessary, and only a dozen All-British cars were ever completed.
