Brussels, BelgiumLive Auction
Description: 24 October 1928 COVENTRY. Preference Shares of £1. brown. No 120. Folds. Swift manufactured from 1900 to 1933. The first model was a voiturette with a single-cylinder engine. 2- and 4-cylinder models were introduced in 1904. New and better models came in in 1912. After WWI only 4-cylinder models were built; these were strong and simple, but with poor fuel economy. Models were redesigned and modified, but the company could never compete with the mass-producers, and the make died in 1931.
