A firm that could trace its origins as far back as the 17th Century, the Alldays & Onions Pneumatic Engineering Company of Birmingham built its first automobile in 1898 and its first motorcycle in 1903, having already branched out into bicycle manufacturing. It was descended from two long-established local engineering companies: Onions, founded in 1650, and Alldays, which had come into being in 1720. By the end of the 19th Century they were major local employers, supplying goods to blacksmiths, foundries, and railway companies.

The firm followed up its first automobile - a 4hp single-cylinder De Dion-engined quadri-cycle - with a single-cylinder light car, before introducing the twin-cylinder 1.6-litre 10/12hp in 1905. This would turn out to be the company's most successful model, lasting in production until 1913. It was popular with commercial drivers and performed well in road trials and hill climbs. A 16hp four-cylinder model was added to the range in 1906, and in 1911 the firm introduced its first six, a 30/35hp model that sat at the top of the range.

In 1908, Alldays & Onions had acquired the Enfield Autocar Company, makers of the Enfield car, and the name Enfield began to be applied to the firm's more upmarket products. Many otherwise identical models were marketed under both brand names. From 1919 car production continued under the Enfield-Alldays name until 1925, while that of motorcycles lasted until the late 1920s.

Strikingly finished in red and yellow, this 10/12hp Alldays & Onions was purchased by the current vendor in November 1971 from Cornfield Garage Ltd in Fulham, West London. It has been on display at the 'Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum' near Halland, East Sussex for almost the entire duration of his ownership, being taken out and exercised once each year. The vendor advises us that the engine is in good condition, and describes the rest of the car as 'reasonable'.
