This rare car was made by the SMC Syndicate. It was named after Foy Steel, an alloy used in the car's universal joints and other components.

The Foy-Steele was a conventional light car powered by a 2303cc, 4-cylinder monobloc Coventry Simplex Engines, with 3-speed gearbox and shaft drive.

Body styles were open 2 and 4-seaters, together with a 'speed model' and a Colonial tourer with higher ground clearance. [1] [2]
