Gilbern

The Welsh Gilbern company from Glamorgan was started by Welshman Giles Smith and an ex POW German Engineer named Bernard Friese. The first portions of their names were Gil and Bern, hence the Gilbern marque. The Gilberns were built in small numbers and finished, apart from putting in the engines and a few other jobs, in order to be able to sell them as kits and save the new car purchase tax. The cars were made in small numbers, sales being helped by their appearance at the Racing car show in the 1961. The Mk1 evolved over time with MGA, and eventually MGB engines, and later the all new Genie was built with the Ford V6 engine, and this later evolved into the Gilbern Invader. The Gilbern company stopped building cars by 1973.
