7-Passenger Touring
Coachwork: Quinby
The Simplex Automobile Co. built one of the most renowned cars in America prior to World War I, with one even finishing in 6th place in the first Indianapolis 500. In 1914, Simplex purchased the Crane Motor Car Co., which was known for its brilliant engineering and was responsible for some of the fastest motorboats and most expensive cars during the same time period. Due to their high quality and equally high price, the cars were often referred to as the 'American Rolls-Royce.' The company went out of business in 1920.

This particular example is powered by a 50 horsepower four-cylinder engine with chain drive. It has had just four owners in its 104 years. Featuring coachwork by Quinby & Co. of Newark, New Jersey, it cost $4,800 when new....more than the cost of a modest home in 1913!
