Anderson_Electric_NPCB_2_A.jpgAnderson Electric195 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 commentsfrank08/16/07 at 08:38Frank: The hubcap is marked: "DETROIT, ANDERSON CARR...

Minerva.jpgMinerva Type EE 192 views1913 Minerva Type EE Sedan - Australian.

Up to 1910, Minerva concentrated on big four-cylinders, including models of 3.8 and 5.9 litres: then they became the first marque in mainland Europe to adopt the Knight sleeve-valve engine, announcing a 38 hp dual-ignition 6.3 1itre four (King Albert was an early patron) followed shortly by models of 2.3 and 4.25 litres. By the outbreak of World War One, the 38 hp had grown to 7.4 litres. There was also a 2.3 litre Fourteen.

The first post-war model was the 1919 NN 20hp four, joined in 1921 by a 5.3 litre 30 hp six, which acquired four wheel brakes in 1923. The TT of 1923 had a sleeve-valve engine of under 2 litres and central gear-change.

The 30 hp was succeeded by the Type AK 32/34 hp, with a proven sporting image, joined in 1930 by the Type AL straight-eight of 6616cc, but the 1930s saw a gradual decline into oblivion for "the Goddess of Automobiles", which merged with Imperia in 1936.
