The Gilchrist Car Co operated from a 20ft square garage to the rear of Sam Gilchrist's, (formerly of Scottish Commercial Cars) bungalow in Orchard Drive, Giffnock, later opening a sales office at 65 West Regent Street, Glasgow.

Gilchrist made their only show appearance at the 1922 Scottish Motor Show (27th January to 4th February) where they displayed a complete chassis along with a Sim and Wilson four-seat tourer and a cabriolet bodied by the Portland Motor Company of Edinburgh.
