Vulcan_CB_1_A.jpgVulcan74 views• Description; Cast brass threaded hub cap with a brass insert for an early Vulcan automobile or truck built in Great Britain. Automobiles were produced between the years of 1902 and 1928 and trucks from 1914 to 1953. An American version of the British truck was also produced in the United States from 1913 to 1916. I believe this to be an early truck hub cap based on the fact that it is a large heavy cap and appears to have never been plated.
• Size; The cap has an outside diameter of 4 19/32” and is 2 ¾” high with 3 7/8”- 16 threads. The cap weighs two pounds.

Empire_25.jpgEmpire 1917 Model 70 25 HP77 viewsThe Empire was the first car to try out the new Indianapolis Speedway Track in 1909, the first one off the line. In 1911, Harry Stutz was hired as a consultant engineer for Empire, changing it's specifications from chain to shaft drive. Stutz designed a unique transaxle for the Empire that set it apart form other cars of the era. Empire was later sold to a group of Indianapolis businessmen, but it never really survived after WW1. The building they were built in still stands to this day on the near west side of Indianapolis. Very few Empires exist today, as they were produced in limited numbers in the first place.

The healthy 6 cyl., 25 HP, Continental engine'. This particular model has unique coach work with a sweeping arch over the top of the front seats, center aisle pass-thru with integral jump seats that fit snugly in the back of the front seats.

Stoewer.jpgStoewer69 viewsThe first company was founded by the Stoewer brothers, Emil (lived 1873 - 1942) and Bernhard (1875 - 1937) in 1896 for manufacturing sewing machines in Stettin. In 1899, the Stoewer brothers founded the firm Gebrüder Stoewer, Fabrik für Motorfahrzeugen and started to produce automobiles. Their first automobile was the Grosser Motorwagen (Large Motor Car), with 6.5 hp (4.8 kW) and 17 km/h (11 mph) maximum speed.In 1908 Stoewers constructed Stoewer G4. This model was immensely successful - 1070 cars were built. In 1910, Stoewer cars were built under licence by Mathis of Strassburg. In 1916, the family-owned company was transformed into a limited company under the name of Stoewer-Werke AG, vormals Gebrüder Stoewer.

In the mid-20's a new class of cars was introduced: the D-Types included D3, D9 and D10 with four-cylinder engines, as well as D5, D6 and D12 with six cylinders. Something special was in 1921 class D7 with a proprietary six cylinder aero engine with 120 hp (89 kW). It was the strongest car in those days.
In 1928 the company started to build S8 and G14 models with eight cylinder engines. At the beginning of the 1930s Stoewers delivered their highlights: G15 Gigant, M12 Marschall and P20 Repräsentant, each with eight cylinder engines, with 60 to 120 hp (45 to 90 kW) and 130 km/h (81 mph) maximum speed. The production of these cars had to be cancelled after 2,500 vehicles being produced due to worldwide economic troubles. In 1931 Stoewer constructed one of the first cars with front-wheel drive at all, class V5 25 hp (19 kW), 80 km/h (50 mph) maximum speed. The model named Greif Junior was built under the licence of Tatra. Its afterdecessor V8 Greif was the last car being constructed by Mr Stoewer itself, class Arkona and Sedina were the last civilian cars produced by the company.

With the beginning of World War II, Stoewer factory started to produce cars for the Wehrmacht as LEPKW class (Leichter Einheits-Personenkraftwagen, or Small Unit-Personel Carrier). After World War II, the Red Army seized the remaining production facilities, dismantled them and sent to the Soviet Union. The days of car manufacturing in this famous factory were over.
