Did Continental Motors supply engine for 1927 Argyll?

Is it known if the 6 cylinder car of 1927 was made by Continental in the USA for Argyll, as it was fitted with Delco-Remy dynamo, starter and distributor, and the nuts and bolts have AF/SAE heads rather than BSF.

As Wallace, who made the engines for the post war cars had gone out of business in 1925 where otherwise did the engine come from?

Interesting question, Graham. As you may have read, my great uncle moved from Argyll to Continental Motors in the USA (initially to continue development of the Argyll single-sleeve valve engine).

So there was an obvious connection between Argyll in Scotland and Continental in Detroit.
