Eldredge (automobile)

The Eldredge was an American automobile manufactured from 1903 until 1906. A product of the National Sewing Machine Company of Belvidere, Illinois, it was a light, two-seater runabout with left-hand drive or two-row tonneau. The 1904 Eldredge Runabout was a runabout model. It could seat 2 passengers and sold for US$750. The horizontal-mounted flat-2, situated at the center of the car, produced 8 hp (6 kW). A 3-speed transmission was fitted. The armored wood-framed car weighed 1150 lb (522 kg) and used platform springs. The 1904 Eldredge Tonneau was a tonneau model. It could seat 5 passengers and sold for US$2000. The horizontal-mounted flat-4, situated at the front of the car, produced 16 hp (11.9 kW). The angle steel-framed car weighed 2300 lb (1043 kg). It was a modern touring car design with a cellular radiator (with fan), and semi-elliptic springs, but sold for far less than competing models.
