In researching the previous post on the American Napier, I came upon several refrences to the company taking over the B.F. Sturtevant blower plant building. There was a T. J. Sturtevant automobile made in Boston, between 1905-1907 but they were not related companies. T. J. Sturtevant is listed as having built a handful of four cylinder cars of both 40/50 h.p. and also a 30/35 h.p.
I have this photo of the front of a car which is cooled by a B.F. Sturtevant blower that is driven by a flat belt running on the front mounted flywheel. Can any of our readers shed any light on this three cylinder oddity? Photo The Old Motor.
