1912 White Model 60 news, pictures, and information
By 1917 the White Company was well established in the truck business and just a few cars were being made by special order. These 'specials' continued to 1936. The White Company made trucks until 1980 after absorbing both Autocar and REO.
The 1911 White automobiles, built in Cleveland, Ohio, came with a monoblock, L-head, 4-cylinder engine with 30 horsepower and a 4-speed transmission, capable of 35 to 40 miles-per-hour. By 1917 the 4-cylinder engine featured much more displacement, 16 valves, magneto ignition and an 18-volt starter-generator that was nearly as big as the engine.
In 1912 this Model 60 was introduced with a 6-cylinder engine rated at 60 horsepower and the same 4-speed transmission. With a wood frame and aluminum skin it sold new for around $5,000. This may be one of only two 7-passenger Model 60 touring cars left.

|See Vintage Steam Cars at this year's Glenmoor Gathering|
|One of the highlighted features of the 2012 Gathering will be steam-powered automobiles. At the end of the 19th century, steam was king—and proven. It powered industrial machinery, ships and railroad locomotives. It was only natural that steam was used to power early automobiles. The most famous of these was the Stanley (shown above) but another well-known steam car was built in Cleveland—the White—and Locomobile began as a steam car. In all, more than 200 vintage and classic American and E...[Read more...]|
