1908 Lozier Type I news, pictures, and information
Chassis Num: 1023
The Lozier Type I was available as a touring car, a limousine, and as a runabout. For 1908, Lozier added a six-cylinder motor and adopted sliding rods in the gear case. These updates greatly reduced the occurrence of dripping oil. The adoption of a shaft drive and the extensive use of ball bearings were among the more important changes for the Lozier cars in 1908.
The six-cylinder engine boasted splash and force-feed lubrication, an enclosed valve train, dual ignition, a large crankshaft, and massive cylinder jugs finished in baked enamel.
The 1908 Lozier Type I 7-passenger Touring car sold for $6,200 when new. This example has spent most (if not all) of its life in central Pennsylvania. The earliest recorded owner was Mr. George Schumacher of Scranton. He was in possession of the car by the early 1970s. It remained with Mr. Schumacher for many years. In the past 45+ years, the car has had only two owners. It is the only known six-cylinder 1908 Lozier in existence.
The car has a four-speed selective gearbox, two-wheel mechanical drum brakes with transmission brake, and a T-head six-cylinder engine with a single updraft carburetor rated at 51 BHP.
In 2009, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held at Pebble Beach, CA. It was expected to sell for $600,000 - $800,000. The car would leave the auction unsold.
