1907 Tincher Model H 60HP Seven-Passenger Touring
- Brand: Tincher
Thomas Tincher's company produced scarcely more than a handful of cars annually between 1903 and 1909 – but what cars they were! Tincher developed some of the largest, most powerful American Brass cars, many of them with double chain drive and a handsome 4-cylinder engine inspired by Mercedes designs, with an overhead cam and exposed valve gear, capable of 50-60hp depending upon the model. Reportedly this design was developed in conjunction with the famous Simplex firm. Bodywork was suitably grand and imposing, as was the price range, between $7,500 and $12,000!
Tincher began production in Chicago and later moved to South Bend, Indiana, where he was backed, notably, by the Studebaker brothers, marking one of their first ventures into the world of automobiles. It was in South Bend when Don C. Boulton's Tincher began its life. Today it is the only car produced by the company known to have survived.
