The first Railtons were produced in 1933 from the remnants of the old Invicta company, the basis was a Hudson Terraplane chassis with a straight 8 engine. 1935 was the peak of production using the Hudson 54 series chassis. Bodies were of a great variety from various coachbuilders and included three tourers and two coupes. Sales fell off in the years prior to the war as resources were put into producing a motor gunboat. There were only two post-war models and production ceased in 1950. The Brough Superior was first made in 1933 and in 1935 also based their cars on the 8-cylinder Hudson chassis. Changing later to the 6-cylinder chassis the cars finally ceased production in 1938.
