About Kieft

Kieft Cars founded by Cyril Kieft was a British car company that built Formula 3 racing cars and some road going sports cars in a factory in Derry St, Wolverhampton.

Cyril Kieft was born in Swansea and spent his early working life in the steel industry. After the second World war he started up his own company Cyril Kieft and Co Ltd in Bridgend, Glamorgan making fordings and pressings including components for the motor industry. He had an interest in motor racing and when the Marwyn company, who had built Formula Junior cars, failed he bought the designs and used them as a base for his own 500cc car. Several of these were sold and some competition success resulted. Publicity was gained by successful attempts on a series of records at Autodrome de Montlhéry in France. One of the drivers was Stirling Moss who explained the shortcomings of the cars. As a result of this a new design was acquired and Moss joined the company which moved to new premises at Reliance Works in Derry Street, Wolverhampton.

For the 1951 season a new design by Gordon Bedson, who had joined the company from the aircraft industry, was produced in time for the Whit Monday Meeting at Goodwood where it won the Formula Junior event driven by Moss. Don Parker was employed as works driver and won the British Formula Junior championships in 1952 and 1953.

In 1954 Kieft started to make a two seater sports car which could also be used as a road car. Using a Coventry Climax FWA engine, all independent suspension using transverse leaf springs at the rear and a lightweight glass fibre body the car was really a racing car and at £1560 it is doubtful if any were bought just as road cars.
