Name that Car

Let's see if anyone can identify this car.

Here are a few hints. It was built in 1904 in New York and is one of only two left. It has an upright, two-cylinder T-head engine putting out 15 horsepower, and a column shift-enclosed transmission. Yep, that is a wooden plank used for the suspension.

The first person to correctly identify this car (in the comment section below) will receive a free museum day pass and ball cap. Good luck!

  1. Nope, not a Rambler. Niagra is a good guess, but it carried a single-cylinder engine.
