Letters: Rambler Comments
Wallace S. Phinney, Sr.
I noted the Rambler picture on the inside back cover of the November-December 1971 issue of ANTIQUE AUTOMOBILE.
To further identify the car, it is a 1905 Series 1 Rambler. It is a two-cylinder car with a crank on the side with the running board scooped out to provide clearance. It has a single chain drive to the rear axle and has a planetary transmission though it uses a cone clutch to disconnect the transmission. The engine is hidden by a leather oil drop apron instead of the usual metal pans.
Thought you would like to know of this model as almost nothing appears in literature form.
