1 of 3 Roadsters
This rumble seat Roadster was the sportiest model of the time and an incredible car. The Twin Six engine is regarded as the first production V12 and was initially offered from 1916 through 1922. Engine specs are 424cid and 90hp. The transmission is 3-speed manual. Examples of the fantastic craftsmanship from the era are abundant throughout the car. Features include a very unusual ornate radiator mascot/motor meter, wooden spoke artillery wheels, a very unusual rear mounted dual spare tire carrier. The engine and serial numbers are correct for the year.
The original owner of the car was Joe Daniels from Daniels Packaging company in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Daniels was in the habit of buying a new car every couple of years and the old one was never traded in--just put in the basement of the packaging company and kept for "posterity". Somewhere in the mid-1970s this car was given as a gift to Fabian Woodzika who owned the sunflower Collection, then to Earl Schutte of Wausau, WI.
