Rutenber Engines

Hi all,
I'm looking for information on Rutenber engines from the 1909-1911 era. Our 1910 Auburn has one and I'm looking to compare. Even photos would be helpful. What other car manufacturers used Rutenber engines?

Re: Here is a 10 minute YouTube on a 1904 restoration and dr

Alan- It was great to see the car in person in Texas, but for those that have not yet seen it, this is so well done. If only every early car owner knew their cars history and could explain the mechanical aspect of their car so clearly. What a wonderful car and a fantastic video! Thanks for posting i...

Re: Horseless Carriage License #548 or 549

What a great looking car! I believe it is a 1912 Buick Model 43 and started life as a Touring car.
Thanks for sharing the photo.
Hopefully someone will post with what it looks like today.

Re: Valuation of a Holsman 1904

Nice car. Everyone is correct that if it is a 1904 (or earlier) it typically will command a premium above the 1905 and later cars. Are you sure this is a 1904? We are restoring a 1908 (built in late 1907) and it is very similar to this one. I believe ours is in the 2400 number range. I will double c...
