In 1906 came the 24/30 hp vertical four of 4654cc; followed in 1907 by the 38/45 hp of 8832 cc. The 12/15 hp twin made due in generation until 1909. This was the year that T. C. Pullinger (some time ago of Darracq, Sunbeam and Humber) joined Arrol-Johnston; he cleared out the old go in favour of the new 15·9 hp of 2835cc. That model offered a dashboard radiator and four-wheel brakes (the last were dropped in 1911). For 1912 a 1794 cc 11·9 hp, a 3640 cc 20·9 hp and a 3618 cc 23·8 hp were presented.
In 1913 Arrol Johnston purchased land at Heathhall, simply outside Dumfries, and authorized an American firm to raise an industrial facility. This is said to be the first plant in Britain to utilize ferro-(cement strengthened with metal bars), and was planned by Albert Kahn, draftsman of the Ford industrial facility at Highland Park, Michigan, where the Model T was handled. A-J contracted to manufacture 50 electric autos for Edison at the new plant yet it is not sure what number of were really made. Numerous models of auto incorporating the six-barrel 23/9 were advanced to the episode of war.
The leading post war Arrol-Johnston was the Victory model in 1919 outlined by G. W. A. Tan which had an ohc 2651 cc 4-barrel motor of 40 hp. They acquainted the model with operators in March 1919 yet the first processing auto was not conveyed until August; it was sold to the Prince of Wales. The Victory tragically demonstrated “unsellable and untrustworthy”, and broke down while on a Royal tour of the West of England, with the goal that the attention going to its presentation was not of the kind it required. It was soon swapped by a modernized form of the prewar 15·9 hp; it was shabbier, however this was because of such cost-curtailing measures as a dark painted radiator and settled ignition. The 15·9 hp was resuscitated as a critical shift for the Victory. A more up to date form, the 20 hp, was presented close by the 15.9 hp in 1922.
In 1921 the shabbier Galloway was started as, in principle, a differentiate make, from the Tongland works close Kirkcudbright. The auto was dependent upon the Fiat 501 and began with the 10/20 with a 1460 cc side-valve motor, in 1925 developing to the 1669 cc 12/20 and 12/30. Preparation moved to the principle A-J plant in Heathhall in 1922. A fleeting 14 hp showed up in 1924, just to be swapped the accompanying year by a 12·3 hp model. There likewise was a 4-barrel 3290cc Empire model produced for the states.
