Crane-Simplex History

1916 Crane-Simplex Model 5

Share on:

This car was built by Crane Simplex of New Brunswick, NJ and Long Island, NY in 1916 with a special Farnham-Nelson body. The six-cylinder, 560 cubic-inch engine produced 110 horsepower. The chassis were sold for approximately $10,000. Mr. White of Kendal Green, MA had the Farnham-Nelson built for the special chassis. Crane-Simplex automobiles were very expensive in 1916 and their ultimate cost was probably the company's downfall.

This 1916 7-passenger Touring was owned by Mr. White and then Mr. John Teborg of California before landing in the current owner's collection in 2005. The automobile has less than 60,000 miles and is mostly original.
