Glasgow’s more famous for its ships than its cars, but the city’s good access to steel allowed the area to support a small car industry up until about 30 years ago. In the 1890s, the Argyll Voiturette came to life here, and in the 1960s the Hillman Imp rolled off the production line in nearby Linwood, a few miles away.

From their Bridgeton factory in the city, The Hozier Engineering Company (later Argyll Motors Ltd.) created one of the UK’s first mass-market cars, the Argyll Voiturette in 1899. It featured a 2 and ¾ horsepower engine – cutting edge tech for its time.

Home of the Hillman Imp
The wee Hillman Imp was born here in the 1960s at a factory in nearby Linwood, a few miles west of Glasgow. A response to the small car boom during the decade, the Imp had some radical features for its time – like an aluminium rear engine, folding seats and temperature gauges.
