1907 Dolson Model F Touring

The Dolson family was a successful wagon builder in Charlotte, Michigan in the late 19th century. The company built its first car in 1902 and began full production in 1904. The cars were highly regarded for their fine mechanical features. They were also known for their early adoption of galvanized steel and copper sheet panels over wooden frameworks for the bodywork. Sadly, Dolson closed its doors in 1908 with an estimated production of just 700-800 cars.

This Dolson Model H Touring Car is the only known surviving example, and one of the last automobiles produced by the company. It features a 55-60 horsepower L-head four-cylinder engine built by the Milwaukee Motor Company. Its dark green finish is an original color.

This car was one of the lucky ones saved from a scrap pile. It was moved from museum to museum before it was discovered by a group of auto enthusiasts from Charlotte. It then disappeared for a while before being shown at the Concours d'Elegance of America RM Auction in 2012.
