The Roamer

The Roamer, built between 1916-1929, was another assembled car that from 1918-1924 used the Rochester-Duesenberg engine that we have been covering. Like many of the others we have looked at, the Roamer was sporty and exclusive looking and aimed at someone who wanted style and something different. They copied the Rolls-Royce radia-tor style and used it thru their production run. The company was probably the longest lasting of this breed of maker but after 1924 their sales dropped off. The car above is an attractive touring car from 1922 with a fabric-covered  dual cowl with a second wind-shield. The photo below shows a Roamer dealer with a line up of cars at an unknown auto show.
