55 HP, T-Head In-Line 6-Cylinder Engine, 3 Speed Transmission Chassis No. 13594 The Haynes-Apperson was considered America's first commercially successful motorcar. It has been built in Kokomo, Indiana, and had recorded sales as early as 1894. By 1905, Elwood P. Haynes had taken over the company and dropped the Apperson name, while continuously improving the product. 1916 saw a number of innovations and improvements with a total of 9,813 cars coming off the assembly line that season. This example features an older cosmetic re do with the body done in dark blue with ivory pin stripe, while the seats are in black diamond pleated leather, with the top a black fabric. The radiator is fitted with a Deluxe Moto Meter and the car features electric lights and starter, of which a control box by the Leece Neville Corporation controls the operations. Sitting on huge 34” x 3” wheels, there are a pair of spare tires mounted to the rear while on the dashboard you can find a Keyless Clutch "rim wound" dashboard clock and Stewart speed o meter plus odometer which shows 1,779 miles. Haynes may have offered this car as a Light Touring, we would say it looks pretty heavy when compared with a majority of cars on the road today.
