For offer is this 1904 Pope Toledo built in the style of a Vanderbilt Cup Race Car with a 24 horse power engine. Engine and parts are believed to have come from Herb Lytle who drove the #6 Pope Toledo in the 1904 Vanderbilt cup race to a third place finish. The parts were then purchased by known collector Dick Teague, who worked to collect a correct frame and many other parts. The car was assembled in the early 1980’s by a known brass car restorer who cast a new transmission and crafted a new radiator and body work.
The car was driven up the hill of the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2000 and 2001.
Equipped with a progressive shift three speed transmission.
Car has electric starter and a hydraulic disc brake.
Car starts and drives amazingly well and is very fun to drive. Is said to go about 60 miles per hour.
Would be an amazing addition to any early car collection.
