Single seater?

Needs some research but possibly either a Calcott or a Calthorpe from around 1910.

Nice photo. Not dissimilar to the 1914 Humberette cyclecar that I am restoring and recording on the AACA forum.

It is the Calcott Light Car, the early 1913-14 variant.

The ‘hump’ of the radiator is way above height of bonnet and on Calthorpe it is nearly the same height. So, as not Calthorpe, the radiator does however have relatively sharp leading edges which suggests it is one of the early Calcott cars which began manufacture only in 1913. Soon after. the radiator had a slightly curved leading edge. Car also has slightly elongated sidelights and no door handle  which suggest 1914,  so I would go for a cca 1914 Calcott 10.5 HP Two Seater & Dickey with a 1.5 L engine
