30 HP, In-Line 4-Cylinder T-Head Motor, 3-Speed Transmission Engine No. 31990 Taking its name from the first initials of the three founders last name, the EMF got a bad rap from the beginning by being used as an acronym for such things as "Every Mechanics Friend" or "Every Morning Fixit". In truth, the EMF was a very good car for its day and the men behind it were tops in their field. Barney Everitt had done quite well in the early body business, William Metzger's expertise in sales had taken Cadillac to its leadership position and Walter Flanders understood production having helped Henry Ford get his company up to speed. This sharp little runabout appears to have been lovingly restored a number of years ago and is well appointed from the original EMF-30 brass headlights to the Jarvis winged "Water Meter" radiator ornament. It is even fitted with a Haven clock and vintage Jones combination speedometer and odometer, which indicates 4,224 miles. Through a marketing agreement, Studebaker had a hand in the sales and distribution of the car and today the EMF is considered a part of that automaker's legacy. With just a little work this car could be up and running ready for rallies or car shows, giving you a chance to buy a 102 year old legend.
