The history of the Solex carburettor – information sought

Thomas Coates has contacted us from France.  He is researching the history of the Solex Carburettor company during the pre-war period.  If anybody can help him with historical information on the company he will be very grateful – because although he has tracked down a number of period photographs of the factories in France and the UK, and some of the company’s history, there is still much to discover.

If you can help, please send us your contact details through the Comments function below and we shall be happy to pass these on to Thomas.
