1905 OLDSMOBILE Light Tonneau, 1-cyl., 10 hp

OLDSMOBILE — LIGHT TONNEAU — ONE-CYLINDER: The Light Tonneau or rear-entrance Tonneau Touring car was carried over for 1905 with no changes to speak of. Standard equipment included a four-passenger detachable tonneau body, single cylinder horizontal engine under body, two-speed reverse and planetary transmission, pressure feed lubrication, jump spark ignition, single chain drive, angle steel frame, 83-inch wheel-base, 3-1/2 × 30-inch tires and tools. There is no indication, in 1905 advertisements, of continued availability without a rear seat. There was now a Light Delivery Car — actually a van — built on this chassis. It sold for $1,000, but fits technically into the commercial vehicle field. The Light Tonneau again had brass side lamps and came in colors of dark green and red.
