Davrian cars were built by Davrian Developments at Clapham in London, from 1965 to 1976, in Tregaron, Dyfed, from 1976 to 1980 and Lampeter, from 1980 to 1983.
In 1967, the design had settled to a 2-seat glass fibre monocoque Coupé, officially called the Davrian Demon or Davrian Imp. Series production started with a company being formed called Davrian Developments. The cars were sold in kit form. A variety of power units were offered including Mini, for mid-mounting, Type 1, for rear-mounting, and Ford Fiesta. The car weighed in at 448 lb or 203 kg. Over the years a series of improvements led the cars to go through Marks I to 8. They proved very popular in amateur hands as rally and circuit racing cars.
In 1980 the Mk8 was offered as a complete car called the Davrian Dragon. This was mid-engined and used Ford Fiesta components and engine. The company was insufficiently capitalised for this operation, and went into receivership in 1983. This car was subsequently relaunched as the Corry and the earlier more basic versions continued being made in the same premises but under new ownership as the Darrian.
This example of a Davrian MK 7A, was built by Davrian cars in 1974 but registered in 1998. It is Imp based with a standard 875cc engine. The car has been subject to a complete bare shell restoration, with a new interior, wheels, tyres, instruments etc. Excellent Road/Race Rally Car eligible for H.S.C.C Racing. Absolutely immaculate, a stunning and rare vehicle.
