Today's Tuesday Trivia. Chrysler started a revolution in 1984 with the introduction of their Caravan, Voyager, and Town & Country minivans. Name the 2, post war, American minivans produced before the Chrysler trio.

Tuesday trivia. Last week's question: My Dad has owned French, German, Italian, as well as 5 different American manufacturer's products, yet has used the same brand key fob for all. What did dear ol' Dad drive? Anwer: Jeep. Produced by Ford, Bantam, Willys, AMC and Chrysler. AMC and Jeep were bought out by Renault, then Chrysler. Chrysler and Jeep sold out to Daimler Benz, then an investment firm ( oh, make that 6 American companies! ) then to FIAT. This is beside the fact that Jeep has been produced in many other countries including Beijing, Iran, Egypt, India, and the Netherlands just to name a few.

Wow!! I only had identified 4! It is interesting to see the " rebirth " of 4 bangers in large sedans, especially in the E class and 7 series.  I wonder what the take rates are? Meanwhile, GM has put the minuscule 1.4, four cylinder turbo ( 148 hp, 216 ft/lbs ) in many of their large offerings.  For comparison, The 230, 250 I6 produced between 140-155 hp, an average 1968 Chevelle tipped the scales above 3100 pounds. Today's Impala runs the scale to 3600 - 3800 pounds and is available with the 1.4 .  Hummmm.

1911 POPE-HARTFORD
PORTOLA ROADSTER

 

It is believed the body is a reconstruction of the original, built atop a genuine Portola engine and chassis. After its time with Dick

King, the Pope-Hartford was

passed to another brass-era enthusiast who continued to show and enjoy the car. Still appearing fresh and impeccably detailed, the black bodywork is finished to concours quality standards, with outstanding paintwork on the

chassis and body components.

The wooden cowl boards are exquisitely finished, like fine

antique furniture. The frame-

mounted fuel tanks and gloss

black patent-leather skirts

between the body and running

boards help give the Pope its low-slung appearance, despite those massive 36” wheels. Accessories include Pope-Hartford branded

Gray & Davis headlamps, Gray & Davis cowl lamps and numerous beautifully restored brass fittings. Instrumentation is via a Warner speedometer and clock, while a separate gauge monitors fuel pressure, which is boosted via a

hand pump between the seats. Running boards and floors are finished in period appropriate

linoleum panels, and the seats

are beautifully trimmed in black leather showing virtually no signs

of use since the restoration was completed in 2011. The sale will include both the jump-seat rear

deck as well as the spare-wheel carrier, which can be changed

over for the full road-racer effect.

     

Offered for $650,000

full and partial trades

considered
