This car is a four-passenger touring car wîth an aluminum body, handmade. The body is readily detachable exposing a wooden frame; the wooden frame supposedly made for easier riding. Power is supplied by an 18 inch blower and 3.25 inch bore, plus 4.25 inch stroke engine. The engine is also fitted wîth a feed-water heater for greater efficiency. To prevent injury in case of a boiler explosion, the boiler is wrapped wîth sturdy piano wire. Tire size is 32 x 4 wîth a wheel base of 112 inches. The tourer sold in 1913 for $1,300.Source - Luray Cavern Museum
