MOON 8.80/8.92

5-passenger saloon, 7-passenger saloon, Victoria coupé, open 2/3 seater, cabriolet roadster.

The car used a Continental engine, and was an attempt to build a European type quality vehicle; there was a dropped frame, hydraulic brakes, automatic chassis lubrication and, unusually for a Yank of this era, a four speed 'box. Two wheelbases, a long 141ins and a short 125½ins. It was a good for 80mph and cost £775 for a saloon. Six-volt electrics odd on such a car, though.
