Nashville has preserve the marathon motors factory pretty well and today I walked through there again and noticed the pricing on a number of their vehicles from the 1914 era were about twice as much as a model T, and yet offered no more for the money.

The engine and transmission design are very similar except that the cylinders are cast in Paris instead of using one engine block with sleeves. Henry ran these guys add a business with his manufacturing acumen.
