Noel Macklin started building cars of exceptional durability at his home from the mid 1920's, The Invicta, initially with 2 .5 litre Meadows engine had the the 3 litre engine by 1926 . By 1929 came the well known 4 1/2 litre which was in production until 1936. Many would say the Stype ranks as one of the best looking sports cars built in the Vintage tradition. Needless to say these were expensive high performance cars, so the company decided to make a small 1.5 litre car in 1932 to survive the depression. In 1938. From the mid thirties things tapered off, and although there was talk of a range of cars on new independent front suspension, nothing seems to have come of it. Post war a handful of the 3 litre "Black Prince" were made before it was over. Local company AFN Ltd bought the assets of the company but did not carry anything on.
