1918 Biddle Model H news, pictures, specifications, and information
Town Car
The Biddle Motor Car Company manufactured luxury automobiles in Philadelphia from 195 to 1922. Advertisements stated proudly that Biddles were assembled from the best parts produced by others, including top-of-the-range Duesenberg motors. Biddle motorcars were styled in the European tradition and were very distinctive with v-shaped radiators resembling those of early Mercedes. Some models, like this Type H Town Car, even featured British-built Rudge-Whitworth wire wheels.
The Philadelphia, PA based Biddle Company was in the automotive business from 1915 through 1922. The name 'Biddle' came from a prominent Philadelphia based family. The company's president was Mc. I. Maris and the designer was Charles Fry. The cars they produced were well built and of high-quality. Power was from a Buda engine, the rear axle from Salisbury, worm and gear steering from Warner, Rudge-Whitworth provided the wire wheels, and the electrics were sourced from Westinghouse. Engine options included a 226.4 cubic-inch or a 350.5 cubic-inch unit.

In the front of the Biddle cars were a vee-style radiator reminiscent of the Mercedes 28-95 models. The coachwork for most of the bodies was performed by Fleetwood of Fleetwood, Pennsylvania.
