A picture of the Classic Dellow that was taken at Rhug North Wales
Ken Delingpole and Ron Lowe combined more than just their surnames when they set up a tuning company as an offshoot of Ken's business: Delson & Co., manufacturers of bolts, screws and fastenings, situated at Alvechurch near Birmingham in 1946.

In addition to tuning and sports car preparation, Dellow Motors were agents for Wade-Ventor superchargers and Midlands Agent for the H.R.G. sports car, which was Ken's choice when he went trialling.
