Have to be honest, had never heard of these until a pic of one came up on a classic car site I frequent.

And then there were these! ..... made by Stewart Sandford the British owner of a Morgan dealership in France .... started making them in 1924 for racing ..... just a small workforce and a few cars a week

I can’t remember which year, but at a recent Montlhèry Revival, Darmont was one of the featured manufacturers.
The event had attracted a large number of them.
I’ve not seen one in the UK though.

I too recall that event Bud. Up until then I had never heard of them but I have to say they certainly got a move on during the event.
