1910 Chadwick Model 19

It is believed that around 300 Chadwick Six Model 19 examples were created. Today, there are only two survivors. It is rather unfortunate, as these were truly impressive automobiles. There extremely large six-cylinder engine displaced over 11 liters and produced an astonishing 75 horsepower. Considering the road conditions and safety devices of cars of this era, this was an impressive, albeit dangerous, accomplishment. The Model 19 was their most memorable and famous vehicle. For an additional fee, the engine could be fitted with a supercharger.

The engine for the Model 19 was rather intriguing. It consisted of three-blocks, had inlet valves in the head with exhaust valves at the side, and a copper cover around each group of two-cylinders. The copper cover had water circulating through it and provided cooling to the engine.

The Chadwick motorcars were created by Lee Sherman Chadwick, who was an engineering student at Purdue University. At the tender age of just 24 he invented a mechanism for a washing-machine manufacturer.
