In car starved post World War II the public wanted new cars..any new car.This car company was founded in 1946 by an former Packard dealer, a former Pontiac engineer and a talented garage mechanic. The intension for this smallish car was as a “second” family car for running local in town errands. Its price was planned to be under $1000.00. This semi sporty car featured the first “retractable”roof offered on an American car..Almost 10 years before Fords famous retractable. Riding on a tiny 90 inch wheelbase it was powered by an “outsourced” 2.2 Liter 4 cylinder engine producing a turtle like 48 horsepower. The only transmission was the Warner 3 speed with no first gear syncro. All this performance was riding on Go-cart like 12 inch wheels. Like another great automotive idea The Tucker this car would never reach production. A total of 97 pre-production models were made. Also like the Tucker these cars would get heavy media and press time. Some were even shipped to Europe in hopes of getting captial. In an odd twist of fate the stock offering would fail due to fears from the Tucker scandal and the company would fail in 1949. Henry Kaiser of “Kaiser Automobile” fame would try to bring the company back to life in 1950 but failed due to lack of interest and funding. Of the 97 made 40 are still known to of survived.
