Close enough, the name is the Smith Flyer but it was probably known by both names. here's a few pics: http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&s...qi=g1&aql=&oq=

Looks a bit like a snow sled! It's all yours, Kobra.

I really like Auto history, Hemmings has a lot of cool stuff in the 3 mags I get from them, Classic Car, Muscle Machines and the sales book has added a lot of good reading to the front of the mag. I get these 3 mags every month and Rod and Custom, it's tough finding time to read them, they are not mostly advertising and can take quite a few hours to go through.

They used two types of engines for the APU.

One was the Lawerance Model 20 horizontally opposed piston, or boxer engine.

The other was the Andover V-Type gasoline powered air cooled engine.

They both were used to drive the AP-2 type 200 amp DC gen. used for starting the engines or AUX power.

kobra, you had the right engine wrong plane, Just for your own info., or anyone else that reads this. The Crosley engine was known as the COBra engine or Copper Brazed, also known as the Mighty Tin, it was made for PT boats, and the B-17 flying fortress, the engine was made from sheet metal. They were used mostly to run GEN.

kobra not trying to make you look bad, we have all made mistakes on here just ask Brian because when he makes one which is very seldom he let's us all know with a "HOLY CRAP".LOL

I have to think of one or look one up, I like to go back in time, so it will be a bit.

Bob

This is the question.

Apperson, Kissel, Midland, and National. Among others had a reputation for doing something.
What was it they did?

They were American made sports cars that competed in early rallys like Monti Carlo, they were derived from the Touring cars of the named manufactures. Apperson, Kissel, Midland, and National.
