It's not a Frazer, as in Kaiser-Frazer or Kaiser Darrin. It's not a Nash, as in Nash, Hudson, or Nash-Healey.
It's a Frazer Nash, originally built by Archibald Frazer-Nash and later by the Aldington brothers in Isleworth, London, England.
Famous for the "chain-drive" Frazer Nash built in the hundreds between the wars and later for the 85 post-war cars which had great success in racing and rallying in the '50's, the Frazer Nash certainly deserves a place on the Internet!
The company Archie later started, Frazer-Nash Research Limited, is now a successful engineering firm in England, but this company has had no connection to the Frazer Nash cars since the late '20's. Frazer Nash Communications Ltd and Frazer-Nash Consultancy Ltd are other UK companies with great names but no relation to the former automobile manufacturer.
The manufacturer of the Frazer Nash, AFN Limited, ceased building these cars in 1956, but became very successful as the importer of Porsche to Great Britain.
Nearly all the post-war cars still exist and have a well known and interesting history. This site describes the Le Mans Replica, Mille Miglia, Targa Florio, Le Mans Coupe and Sebring models. For more information on the chain-drive and other pre-WWII Frazer Nash cars, please visit the web site of the Frazer Nash Section of the Vintage Sports Car Club. The Section also supports the postwar cars and publishes the excellent "Chain Gang Gazette".
