White History

1935 White Custom Model 703

Share on:

The White Sewing Machine Company of Cleveland established a sideline business of building steam-powered automobiles in 1900. John D. Rockefeller bought one in 1905. A White was the only car permitted in President Roosevelt's inaugural parade, who then became America's first Commander-in-Chief to drive a car - a White. William Howard Taft established the first White House automobile fleet in 1909, which included a White. The last White steamer was built in January 1911 and its last gasoline automobile was in 1918, moving exclusively to truck production from that point onward.

This one-off vehicle was built exclusively for Louisa Pane Tingley of Boston. Tingley was a shareholder in the White Sewing Machine Co. and it is presumed she used her influence to have it built. It is based on a White truck chassis using a modified Yellowstone bus body. Tingley kept records on the car until July 1951 indicating 57,628 miles. She died one year later. Today, the vehicle is in largely unrestored condition with little more than 72,800 miles.
