The Albion name goes back to 1899 and lasted through several mergers before the marque became completely defunct in 1980. The original company Albion Motor Car Company Ltd was founded by Thomas Blackwood Murray and Norman Osborne Fulton in 1899, joined soon after by John F Henderson. At that time they had only seven employees but in 1903 the company moved to new premises in Scotstoun in Glasgow. Albion made motor cars initially, then progressed to commercial vehicles including 3-ton trucks for World War I and then after the conflict, manufacture expanded to buses. Famous for their commercial vehicle production; the company gave names to their fleet, mostly beginning with V, hence the Victor and all sporting the Albion badge comprising the rising sun above the wavy horizon. We have chosen a bright Coca Cola livery in their characteristic bright and red with eye-catching decoration to the sides and rear of the truck to launch the new model, which will please collectors of the famous US drinks brand.
