1920 Lexington Series S news, pictures, specifications, and information
Touring
The Lexington Motor Company was founded in 1909 in Lexington, Kentucky. The year later, the firm moved to Connersville, Indiana. From the start, the Lexington was an assembled car. They produced popular cars in several body styles with both four- and six-cylinder engines. They placed first and second in 1920 at the famous Pike's Peak Hill Climb. That year, the company produced 6,000 cars and 12,000 the following year. In 1922, the postwar recession coupled with bad publicity concerning the company's owner caused sales to plummet to 3,000 cars. The company soon went into receivership. In 1927 the Lexington Motor Company and factory were taken over by The Auburn Automobile Company and its president, E.L. Cord.

This Minute Man Six touring car was an upper mid-priced automobile that sold for $1,895. It is powered by a six-cylinder Continental engine that produces 47 horsepower. Its wheelbase measures 120 inches and it weighs 3,000 pounds. It is a very rare automobile and is one of perhaps 20 extant Lexington automobiles.
