Jeffery_PB_1_A.jpgJeffery78 views• DESCRIPTION: Pressed brass threaded hubcap for a Jeffery automobile built in Kenosha, Wisconsin between the years of 1914 and 1917. This cap is noted on the inside as being for the rear wheel of a 1914 or 1915 model but I am not positive of the application. This cap also has the double bead and hole for a snap ring.
• SIZE: The hubcap has an outside diameter of 4 5/8” and is 2 3/16” high with 4 1/8”-16 threads.

jewett_1925.jpgJewett Six 192580 viewsThe first Harry Jewett made a fortune in mining around the turn of the century and decided to try the same in the then infant auto industry. He acquired a car designed by Andrew Bachle which was being promoted by Fred O. Paige.

Since Jewett didn't know much about autos, he installed Paige as president of his newly formed Paige-Detroit Motor Car Co. In 1909. In 1910, having learned a bit about cars, he decided that the Paige was "a piece of junk" and fired Paige, took over himself and hired a new engineering department to design a new car. The new car was a vast improvement on the older one and Paige sales gradually picked up. The first six-cylinder Paige appeared in 1915.

The Paige gained a reputation for graceful styling and good performance. A smaller companion car was introduced in 1922, named after the president and founder, Harry Jewett.

In 1927, Jewett decided he had had enough of the auto business and sold the company to the Graham brothers, Joseph B., Robert C., and Ray A., who reorganized it as Graham-Paige Motors Corp.
