Arrol-Aster and Galloway cars

1927 Arrol-Johnston and Aster Engineering Co was formed when Arrol-Johnston and Aster Engineering Co merged. Both companies kept their model ranges but a new car was added: the 2.5 litre six-cylinder 17/50hp with a sleeve valve engine.

In 1929 a straight-eight with a supercharger was offered but was too late to save the company.

Company ceased in 1931.
