1911 Rambler Model 65

During the 1890s, the Rambler was the second-best selling bicycle in the United States. As the Nineteenth Century came into view, Thomas Jeffery became interested in the automobile. A single-cylinder Rambler car was built in 1897. The following year, he and his son Charles built two more cars and exhibited them in shows in his home city of Chicago and in New York. The cars had two-cylinder engines mounted in the front. The cars were left-hand drive.

Jefferys sold his bicycle business in 1901 to Colonel Albert Pope's American Bicycle Company. Jefferys went into the auto industry using his 1898 car as a guide for the production version. In February of 1902, the production version was introduced and it was rather different from the prior models. It was powered by a single-cylinder engine which had been placed under the seat. A tiller on the right was used to control the vehicle. During its first year, 1500 buyers agreed with the car at a cost of $750.

By 1905 and 1906 the Rambler Company was in third place in terms of sales. They remained in the top ten throughout the decade. In 1910, Thomas Jeffery died of a heart attack and in 1914; Charles re-christened the Rambler with the family name. After nearly escaping death when the Lusitania sank, Charles acquired a new outlook on life and chose to retire. The company was sold in 1916 to Charles Nash. The Rambler name soon faded away, replaced with the 'Nash'.
