Make Gladiator
History          
Year 1902
Single cylinder, chain drive. This was the first motor car to be imported into Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) - It was imported in 1902 by Major Charles Duly, who at the time ran a cycle agency in Bulawayo.

It would appear that the car was modified at some stage as later photos show a flat roof over all passengers in place of a cart hood and an extended bonnet.

Many years later the remains of the car were traced to a farm at Mazabuja, Zambia, but it was beyond restoration.
