Dellow were founded by Ken Delingpole and Ron Lowe to produce cars for use in motor trials. The first cars used a Ford 10 engine in an A frame chassis with very simple bodywork, early cars had no doors. Emphasis was on precise handling and good performance. The car went through several variants known as Mk I to Mk V. Early cars had a beam front axle with transverse spring which continued until the Mk V which had coil springs. About 4-500 are thought to have been made.

A new company based in Oldbury, Birmingham produced a MK VI with glass fibre body but few were made.
