Post and discuss all general info about James Young here.
You may start new topics on specific cars, projects and makes designed and/or bodied by James Young.

James Young was a British coachbuilding company.
The business was started in 1863 in London Road, Bromley, originally producing horsedrawn carriages.

In 1908 they made their first car body for a local Member of Parliament.
From 1921 they bodied several Bentley cars as well as others such as Alfa Romeo, Sunbeam and Rolls-Royce.
The company had grown sufficiently to take their own stand at the 1925 London Motor Show, as well as individual commissions James Young also fitted some standard designs to cars including Talbot and Sunbeam.

In 1937 the company was bought by London Rolls-Royce dealer Jack Barclay.

During World War II they built aircraft components but the factory and all records were destroyed by bombing.

Coachbuilding resumed after the war and a stand was taken at the 1948 Motor Show.
The last automobile bodies were made in 1967.
