The Adams was an English auto produced in Bedford between 1905 and 1914.American-conceived Edward R. Hewitt had helped Sir Hiram Maxim to manufacture an expansive steam plane in 1894. He later composed a “gas carriage” along the lines of an Oldsmobile; this machine was fabricated by the Adams Manufacturing Company. The Adams had a probably secure epicyclic transmission with a 10 hp (7.5 kw) single-barrel motor. Without a doubt, “Pedals to push, that is all” was utilized as the marque’s motto. Hewitt finally came back to the United States to make comparable autos under his own particular name, after which more expected shaft-driven autos with vertical motors were processed (starting in 1906). Models offered incorporated two- and four-chamber ones and one of the first British V-8s; this last had a 35/40 hp (26/30 kw) motor dependent upon the French Antoinette model (an aeroengine for which Adams were operators). Be that as it may the V-8 was tormented by crankshaft breakages.
In 1910, the organization handled a progressed 16 hp (12 kw) model with front-wheel brakes; it accompanied packed air beginning, tire-blowing up, and jacking supplies. The “pedals-to-push” rigging was still offered, as was an ordinary four-velocity transmission and a bizarre planetary gearchange (three-pace), which was worked by a pedal that moved in an entryway. The organization collapsed for great in 1914.
