Dealer profile and vehicle listings for Coys

Wilfred E Coy was one of the world's truly innovative motoring and aviation entrepreneurs.

Serving his country in the 1914-1918 World War as a young Royal Flying Corps engineer, he helped develop new and crucially valuable prop-synchronised machine guns for Britain's fighting aircraft.With the war over, Wilfred Coy teamed up with William Morris – later Viscount Nuffield of the British Motor Corporation – the founder of Morris Cars. Working together, these two men were to design and operate one of Britain's first fleet of road petrol tankers.In 1919 Wilfred Coy branched out on his own. Opening the country's first ever petrol station, he also set up a retail showroom in Kensington's Queen's Gate Mews.Wilfred's friendships with Viscount Nuffield and Lord Rootes ensured that Coys of Kensington became London agents for many of the great marques of motoring's early years. Morris, Singer, Rover and MG were all popular with Coy's clients. For a while, Coy was also a representative for the famous German Auto Union company.Always a keen participant in motor sports, Wilfred Coy was a regular visitor to Brooklands between the wars. He also made many other eventful trips to circuits elsewhere in Britain and continental Europe. As a driver, he tested most of the performance cars of the 1920's and 1930's. With his well known love of almost everything motoring, Wilfred spent decades investing much energy and enthusiasm in ensuring that Coys became and remained one of the leading names in British motoring history.
