The Galloway 10/20 was a early car model built in Scotland by Galloway a subsidary of the Arrol-Johnston car company, based in Dumfries.

HistoryEdit

Designed by T. C. Pullinger and Fred Neale from Hillman, and heavily influenced by the Fiat 501, the 10/20 used a straight four, side valve engine of 1460 cc driving the rear wheels through either a three or four speed gearbox in unit with the engine. Suspension was by semi elliptic leaf springs at the front and quarter elliptic springs at the rear.

PreservationEdit

Only 14 Galloway cars are believed to survive worldwide.
