1905 Queen Model E news, pictures, specifications, and information
In 1902 Carl H. Blomstrom produced a single-cylinder automobile which he dubbed the Blomstrom. With a 5.5 inch bore and a 6 inch stroke, the single-cylinder engine was capable of producing eight horsepower. During their introductory year, around 24 examples had been produced. By 1903 a two-cylinder opposed engine had been created and patented by Blomstrom.

In 1904 the C. H. Blomstrom Motor Car Company was officially created. The name of their two-passenger runabout automobile was changed to Queen.

At the close of 1906 the Blomstrom Company merged with the DeLuxe Motor Car Company. By August of 1909, with less than 100 'De Luxes' created, the company and all of its assets were sold to Everett-Metzger-Glanders.

During the production lifespan of the Queen automobile, ranging from 1920 through 1906, nearly 1500 examples were created.

Sold for $104,500 at 2011 Gooding & Company.
It is believed that fewer than fifteen examples of the Model E were produced, with only one still remaining in existence. The sale of the 1905 Queen's began in the Fall of 1904. Between 1903 and 1907, it is believed that around 2,000 Queen models were produced.

This example has been shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and may have been created in 1904 - thus making it eligible for London to Brighton runs. It is equipped with polished brass, including a full radiator surround and five front lamps. The hood piano hinges are also fully exposed brass. The divided front seats are finished in black and there is a full top with front storm curtains. AN electric starter has been installed to make starting more enjoyable, though the engine crank is reported to be in working condition.

In 2011, this rare vehicle was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Amelia Island, Florida. It was estimated to sell for $125,000 - $150,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $104,500.
