Simplex History

1912 Simplex Model 50

Share on:

William P. Snyder II of Sewickley, Pennsylvania, was a keen admirer of the sporty new Simplex. He ordered this 50 HP Simplex with a Speedcar body and greatly enjoyed its power and speed, but after the car was damaged in an accident it was re-bodied by Quinby in 1912 with the Toy Tonneau coachwork it wears today. Simplex featured prominently in Mr. Snyder's life as he met his wife to be on the Long Island Ferry while they were both driving Simplexes - and they drove this very car on their honeymoon. It has been kept in the Snyder family ever since and in fact it is the only Simplex in the world that has never been sold.
