Classic Car Overview
The Winton Motor Carriage Company was one of the greatest and highest quality motor car companies in the world in the Pre-1910 era and even through to the 1920’s. Alexander Winton founded his company in 1897 in Cleveland, Ohio and he created some of the greatest mechanical designs of the early days of motoring. Beginning with his large 2 cylinder cars and later moving onto four and later exclusively six cylinder models. In the pre-1905 era WInton’s speed records really wowed the public, but what really raised the company to the spotlight was H. Nelson Jackson and Sewall K. Crocker’s journey from San Fransisco to New York City in a 2 cylinder 20 horsepower Winton in the Spring of 1903. The trip took the pair 64 days, 44 days of which were spent actually driving. This was a pioneering event and was at a time when there were literally hardly any roads, bridges or oil or gas, only their own intuition and planning along the way and a car that could get them where they were going.
Winton was always looking to the future and by 1904 was producing 4 cylinder cars and by 1908 exclusively six cylinder cars. One unique feature of Wintons six cylinder design was they were equipped with a split crankcase so that the crankshaft could be removed while the engine was still in the car. Winton always had ideas that were different, but great. These big sixes were created to compete with the other high quality and expensive six cylinder cars of the period such as Lozier, Packard, and Pierce. Equipped with a 348 cubic inch six cylinder engine paired with a 4 speed transmission and rear axle gearing for high speed driving. These were the highest of quality cars and are really one of the best driving cars of their time.
Offered here is a wonderful 1917 Winton Six-33 touring that is in immaculate condition. Restored around 10 years ago to a very high standard finished in deep maroon with black fenders and wheels, this car really is sharp. The engine was completely rebuilt as was the transmission. Power and smoothness is how driving this car can be described, it shifts very smoothly and is very powerful and comfortable to drive. This would make the ultimate car for nickel era touring and could certainly keep up with the Silver Ghosts, Locomobiles, and Pierce Arrows of its era. If you are looking for a large and powerful nickel era touring car with a beautiful restoration than this car should certainly be considered. Contact us today for more information.
