1908 Kiblinger Runabout news, pictures, and information
When a patent infringement suit appeared by the Success Company in 1908, the company changed its name to the W.H. McIntyre Company and continued with production until 1915.
The Kiblinger automobile, bearing that name from 1907 through 1909, was priced at $250. The Model F, the most expensive Kiblinger in the lineup, sold for $450. The Model A was powered by a two-cylinder engine that produced 4 horsepower. Two other versions of the engine were available - the Model B and C were fitted with a 6 horsepower unit while the Model D, E, and F had the 10-horsepower version.
This 1908 Runabout was produced near the end of the Kiblinger company's life. It features essentially the same chassis as the earlier vehicles, but contained the advanced steering system which included a steering wheel. Power is from a 100 cubic-inch, air-cooled, 2-cylinder engine delivering 100 horsepower. Its wheelbase measures 65 inches and when new, this high-wheeler cost $450.
