The Cambro is a three-wheeled, single-seat cyclecar produced by the Central Aircraft Company of Northolt, Middlesex from 1920 until 1921. It was one of the cheapest cars on the market, priced at £82 19s,[1] but it is unknown how many were made.[2]

The car was powered by a two-cylinder 192 cc two-stroke engine mounted over the single rear wheel, to which it was connected through a gearbox with a single forward gear and no reverse via a chain. The Cambro weighed just 165 lbs (75 kgs). Weather protection was added to the later models, along with a triangular front end.[1]
