New Arrival! 1903 Columbia Electric
Here is one of the new additions to the museum that arrived on Monday. This little Columbia Mark XIX Surrey is a very nice car, restored from a complete original.
The Columbia history begins in 1897 and ends in 1913, during which time many changes were taking place, such as experimenting with gasoline cars, and even a high breed in 07-08 known as the Magnetic. The model you see here was built as a taxi to be used aroound the cities, and was very succesful, with this being the only known survivor.
This is the original volt/amp gauge that tells you the status of the batteries and the amount of power being used to move the car.
