EMERYSONS - 1914 to 1963
first Emeryson cars were created initially by George Emery from
his Engineering workshop at New Malden Surrey. Post war, Emeryson
cars were created with a combination of input from George, Georges
sons Peter and Paul with some cars being designed and built individually
by both Peter or Paul on there own. George's younger son Peter
Emery recounts the family story, in part to redress some of the
myths and anecdotes written by others in the past and to elaborate
on the racing.
After the end of the Second World War and despite losing his
Engineering Works, after having become involved in a business
consortium that went wrong, George and his two sons Peter and
Paul had not relinquished the bug for motor racing and it was
not long before plans were a foot to do something about it.
The following chapters illustrate some of the unexpected problems
and difficult situations brought about by the war as well as the
excitement involved in designing, building and racing these cars.
