I have seen a letter from the Society of Automotive Historians and it states that American LaFrance made experimental cars, three in 1905, three in 1909 and three in 1910. These cars were distinct automobiles and not just cut down fire engines. The '05 and '09 cars were built as Chiefs cars and the 1910 models were used by corporate officers and only one car still exists today. This hubcap is one of only three of its type known to exist.

Anderson_Electric_NPCB_2_A.jpgAnderson Electric196 views The hubcap is marked: "DETROIT, ANDERSON CARRIAGE CO. DETROIT, MICH." In researching "The Standard Catalog of American Cars" one will find several historical marques called "DETROIT", but only one produced by The Anderson Carriage Co., this was the successful: DETROIT (ELECTRIC)!! As the brass center insert for this hubcap reads "ANDERSON CARRIAGE CO." I am led to believe it could be from a very early, and low production car of 1907 - 19111 commentsfrank

The next year the first of the famed Jackrabbit speedsters rolled off the line; this was a 60 hp (45 kW) that sold for $5000. For a time, the entire range was known as the "Jack Rabbit" - in 1913 a 32.4 hp (24 kW) four and a 33.7 hp (25 kW) six were listed, and a 33.8 hp (25 kW) 90 degree V-8 of 5.5 L (5502 cc/335 in³) followed in 1914.
