The Thomas K-670 was built by the E.R. Thomas Motor Company in Buffalo, NY from 1903 to 1913. Some say a few were built later, but there are no records past 1913. Only two are known to exist.
The car is powered by a 786 cubic-inch (12.8-liter) engine that offers 72.6 horsepower. It has a 5.5 x 5.5-inch bore & stroke. it was a big expensive car that was very fast. It sold for $6,000, which was a lot of money in 1911.
This strong runner rests on a 140-inch wheelbase and has a dual chain drive.
A Model K-6-70 won the famous New York to Paris race in 1908. It was a stock vehicle that came directly from the factory with no special preparation. The racers continued to Paris eventually covering 22,000 miles in 169 days.
The car was brought out of storage about eight years ago to start the restoration. The previous owner lost interest in the car and Mr. McMullen purchased the car and finished the restoration.
