Interesting car. It is not a 1904 Model A. The body looks homemade. The chassis appears to be 1905 at the oldest. Model A Cadillac's (1903-04) used angle iron frames, not stamped channel like this later one. This looks like a 1906-7 chassis.

I totally agree with Chris P. I am certainly not a Cadillac expert, and I think Chris knows much more than I do about them. But I right off saw several things that did not look right for a '04. The body does look home-made.
Regardless. I, too, am quite jealous. A little effort, and that could be a fine early one cylinder car!
Numbers and certain specific details would have to be checked to determine exactly what you have.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I'm with Chris, It looks to be an 06 chassis, Very nice car. also envious. I am working on an 11 Maxwell so I can go on the New London to New Brighton tour some day. Your car looks like it could do it now. Nice find and if ever interested in selling I would be interested. 702-353-4436

I would certainly love to have that car just the way it is! An acquaintance of mine here in town had a 1906 in his attic that I was after. Usual story, I asked one day and he had sold it. So much for my Cadillac.

Looks like the ignition duties are being handled by a K-W Master Vibrator of about 1912 vintage. We were talking on another thread about the similarity of the switch on the face of those and the K-W Auto Lock accessory for the 1913/14 Model T coil boxes several days ago.

1906 Cadillac with a homemade body.

There is a LOT of "homemade" on this car I think!
1. The big chain on the flywheel; I assume for a starter
2. The cylinder oiler. I have a 06 Model K Caddilac. They used a mechanically drive McCord lubricator that I believe fed 3 spots (maybe only 2

Gary,
Google The Early Cadillac Group (ECG). They have all kinds of info.There is a number stamped on the engine that will tell what year it is.The steering column is not 1906.I own a 1906 Cadillac Model K.

Hmm, not sure about the rear end. Cadillac 1 cylinder rear ends were all open not surrounded by heavy iron covers as shown.

There is no oiler shown, a 1905 should have a pressure/gravity flow oiler, the 1906 had a mechanical Levine oiler ran with a coil spring "belt'

The frame appears to be 1905 and later. The carburetor has been modified as there is no mixture adjustment on the top.

The steering column is 1905 as it only has a throttle lever, 1906 has both throttle and spark levers. 1905's had the spark lever along side the drivers seat.

Its a damn good start for an early 1 cylinder project.

just sayin'

Ole Henry has made many things run

John, he sure has. Dad and I fit a T carburetor on an 1898 Benz for a friend, back in the late 70's.

And Henry has continued to provide to this day :-)

Regardless of this car being somewhat of a bitsa,it is still an outstanding find. I wish I had the pep and the wherewithal to build a 2 cylinder car from one of my friends unidentified engines. But, I will have to settle with enjoying from afar.

Like the cartoon Dan. Less amusing though, when one takes off from a carcass in the road, carrying a hunk. And drops it on your head.

Henry made many things run and obliviously some things didn't run fast enough. Thanks Dan. and Gary love the car.
