Description: Stoddard-Dayton 10C 4-seat Roadster, 1910 (USA)

Engine: Four-Cylinder     Power: 40 HP  

Louwman Collection

The Stoddard-Dayton marque existed for only a few remain. The unique feature of this particular model is that it is a four-seat roadster, rather that the usual two-seater. Under the hood is a large four-cylinder, 40 HP engine with hemispherical combustion chambers for a better flow of the air/fuel mixture. When the engine is running, the motion of the ingenious valve mechanism is clearly visible. John Stoddard, a manufacturer of agricultural machinery in Dayton, Ohio, was an entrepreneur on the lookout for new challenges. By the end of the 19th century he became increasingly convinced that the automobile had a future and he decided to change course. His son Charles then signed a contract with Rutenber in Chicago for the delivery of petrol engines. Stoddard-Dayton later built its own engines using very advanced technology. It was a large and luxurious car, but the marque also acquired an excellent reputation in racing. Stoddard-Dayton was taken over in 1912 by the United States Motor Company, but this went bankrupt a year later and the marque folded with it.
