Gregory Sedan- 1947

Gregory Sedan- 1947

 

Ben F. Gregory was an advocate of front wheel drive. Gregory made cars on and off for a span of 42 years. His first cars were built around 1920, and it was not until 26 years later, following World War II, that Gregory returned to designing cars. The prototype example you see here is a sedan with a rear mounted engine that drives the front wheels. It is the only example of this lay-out, which called for a propeller shaft when all other front drive cars avoided it. The Gregory has a 3-speed Borg Warner gearbox. Gregory never formed a company for its manufacturer, and this single prototype was made. In the mid-1950s, Gregory produced a sports car which he planned to sell for $5,000. But again, production was only one.
