The Ranalah TourerThe Ranalah body was a creation of John Dalrymple and Charles Livesay, former employees of Chalmer & Hoyer. After the collapse of their previous company, they established John Charles & Co, quickly attracting a diverse clientele and producing various saloons and open bodies on different chassis. They also adopted the name "Ranalah" as a brand for some of their body designs. Unfortunately, rapid growth strained their finances, leading to the company's failure in early 1935.
