An Early Mid-Western Thoroughbred The Tincher: Thomas Luther Tincher set out in 1903 to build the best car possible without regard to cost. He reached that goal and by 1906 was
building the lavish 50-hp. Touring car seen above, complete with a cellaret (liquor or wine cabinet) at a cost of six-thousand dollars.

By 1907 he was building the car as seen below with a powerful s.o.h.c-471 c.i. engine. Learn all about this fascinating car and see many more photos and complete details of its
construction and sophisticated engine @ http://theoldmotor.com/?p=121019

There is a Tincher in an Oklahoma City collection. Probably the only one in existence I would guess. It's a gorgeous car.

It is an awesome sight to see.
Somewhere I have a picture of it.

Yes, only one Tincher is known to have survived and you can link to photos of it in our post.

The photo above of a Tincher racing car shows what is believed to be the car with the 1230-c.i. 7-inch bore x 8-inch stroke engine built in 1905 at a cost of $12,000.

The photo below shows the 1907 and 1908 5" x 6" bore and stroke SOHC four. Many more photos and more info @ http://theoldmotor.com/?p=121019
