Raceabout
Stripped down was the word for the Type 35 Raceabout. The body consisted of fenders and a hood only - no top, no doors, not even a windshield. Instead of the latter, a 'monocle' was attached to the steering wheel. The accelerator and the levers were on the outside.

The car is powered by a side-valve, T-head, 4-cylinder, 4916cc (4.9 Liter) engine developing 50 horsepower. It has a three-speed transmission and is capable of 75 mph.

In 1911, Raceabouts won five of the six major races that racing versions of the model were entered. A Raceabout set eight world speedway records in its class in 1912, and set another four more on a dirt track.

This 3,200-pound vehicle sold for $2,250 in 1911.
