Gregory Sports Roadster-ca. 1954

Ben Gregory was from Kansas City, Missouri, and he believed that front-wheel drive was the preferred method of propelling a car. From 1920-1922, he tried to put a car into production, and it is believed that about ten were made. Funding ran out, and Gregory gave up on the car business. After WWII, he again became interested in producing a front-wheel drive car. The roadster you see here is the only one he made, and he also managed to make a couple of sedans. Gregory tried to convince established car manufacturers to produce his cars, but was unsuccessful. Gregory’s most successful design was the Mighty Mite Jeep produced by AMC.
