Autocar_truck.jpgAutocar133 viewsThe Autocar Company of Ardmore, Pennsylvania built cars from 1901 to 1911 (trucks only after 1911). Autocar produced the first multi-cylinder shaft drive car in America. By 1905 gearshift, clutch, spark and throttle were all controlled from the steering column. Exceedingly well made, they were initially advertised for the negative reasons that "they cannot blow up, or burn up."frank

Baker_PA_1_A.jpgBaker 1911113 views• Description; Pressed aluminum threaded hubcap for a Baker Electric automobile built in Cleveland, Ohio between the years of 1899 and 1916. Baker sued Rauch & Lang in 1911 but had merged with the company by 1915. This cap is the round style with a notch so is an early cap. The note inside of the cap says it is a 1911 but I am not positive.
• Size; The cap has an outside diameter of 3” and is 1 ¾” high with 2 3/8”- 16 threads.

Bean_12_hp.jpgBean 1922 12 hp103 viewsBean Cars were made in factories in Dudley, Worcestershire, and Coseley, Staffordshire, England, between 1919 and 1929.

The first Bean was a resurrection of the pre-World War I Perry car, which had been taken over by A. Harper, Sons & Bean Ltd. Rated at 11.9 RAC horsepower, the 1147-cc 4-cylinder engine was linked to a separate 3-speed gearbox. The car in chassis form initially cost £400, but this was reduced to £245. A four-seat open body was £80. Production was divided between two plants, the one in Dudley producing bodies, and Coseley being responsible for assembly. Production of the model peaked at 80 a week in 1922, with about 10,000 being made in total.

1923 saw the launch of the 14, a much-improved model with a 2.3-litre engine in unit with a four-speed gearbox. About 4000 of all the variants were made up to 1929.

In 1926, following financial problems, the company was rescued by steel supplier Hadfields from Sheffield, and a new model, the 18/50, was introduced with a 2.7-litre overhead-valve six-cylinder Meadows engine. However, this car was to only last a year, with 500 being made. In chassis form it cost £365.

From 1927, all cars were known as Hadfield Beans, and the 14 was updated to become the 2300-cc 14/40. This used the Bean engine again.

The last car model was the 14/45 launched in 1929 and a further upgrade of the old 14 by using a Ricardo cylinder head design. It also now had four-wheel brakes and a worm-drive rear axle. A sport model, the 14/70, was also available featuring a Dewandre brake servo.

No more cars were made from 1929, but the company continued to produce commercial vehicles for two years, and after that concentrated on making components.
