Believe it or not, the company that built this car is still in business. In 1903, the National Sewing Machine Company of Belvedere, Illinois decided to try its hand in the burgeoning car business, but decided not to use the corporate name, in case the car was a flop. Eldredge was the company president’s name. Power came from a two-cylinder engine with atmospheric inlet valves, routed through a three-speed sliding-gear transmission. This is the eleventh of roughly 200 cars built. Only two others are known to exist.
