Albion discontinued making private cars in 1913 to concentrate on an all-commercial programme. This is one of the last light commercial chassis made by the firm. Note the lack of windscreen, and the side windows for driver protection.

jewett_1925.jpgJewett Six 192572 viewsThe first Harry Jewett made a fortune in mining around the turn of the century and decided to try the same in the then infant auto industry. He acquired a car designed by Andrew Bachle which was being promoted by Fred O. Paige.

Since Jewett didn't know much about autos, he installed Paige as president of his newly formed Paige-Detroit Motor Car Co. In 1909. In 1910, having learned a bit about cars, he decided that the Paige was "a piece of junk" and fired Paige, took over himself and hired a new engineering department to design a new car. The new car was a vast improvement on the older one and Paige sales gradually picked up. The first six-cylinder Paige appeared in 1915.

The Paige gained a reputation for graceful styling and good performance. A smaller companion car was introduced in 1922, named after the president and founder, Harry Jewett.

In 1927, Jewett decided he had had enough of the auto business and sold the company to the Graham brothers, Joseph B., Robert C., and Ray A., who reorganized it as Graham-Paige Motors Corp.

Templar_CB_1_A.jpgTemplar194 viewsThis is a nickel plated brass hubcap for a Templar automobile built in Cleveland, Ohio. The Maltese Cross on the cap's face was the symbol of the medieval Knights Templar after whom the car was named. Templars were built in limited numbers from 1917 to 1924. They were billed as America's "Super Fine Small Car", and they were very fine automobiles. Four cylinder overhead valve engines powered these sleek small cars, giving great performance. Templars featured standard equipment and options that few other cars could match. The company failed for a variety of reasons that had nothing to do with the excellence of their automobiles.

The hubcap is a heavy brass casting. Thread diameter is 2 3/4 inches, and the distance across the faces of the wrench hex is 2 1/8 inches. The hubcap needs to be cleaned up and replated for full restoration. There is a very small dent in one of the arms on the cross, and there is a small scrape on the edge of the face that should be dressed with a file before replating. This is a very rare find that could make a Templar owner very happy, or could be a great addition to a hubcap collection.
