The Model “R” CDO was changed during the years it was sold and major changes did not coincide with the calendar year. The earliest Model “R” cars were first modified during 1902 by adding truss rods under the front and rear axles, providing an emergency brake system in the rear differential housing, the carburetor was changed from a crude mixer requiring a fuel pump to a simple floatless design which was gravity fed from the fuel tank and relocating the water tank to allow more water capacity.
