The Lea-Francis Story

Founded in 1895 under the aegis of R.H. Lea, the company originally built cycles and motorcycles but, by the 1920s, was established as a manufacturer of high quality sporting cars.

From the 1930s to the 1960s, Lea-Francis specialized in medium-sized cars built with care and the best quality components.
Successful in motorsports, "Leaf" was an innovative company, but a lack of regard for good business principles led to fluctuating fortunes throughout the company's long life. This text tells the story of the firm.
