Company history

The Bordeaux company began producing automobiles in 1920. The brand name was Gallica . Production ended in 1924.


The company used many parts from Automobiles Ford , which had had an assembly plant in Bordeaux since 1916 and produced the Ford Model T there. So the four-cylinder engine and the power transmission came from the Ford T. The front suspension, the grille and the bodies were different.

A vehicle from this manufacturer still exists. It has the Coupé de Ville body shape .
