1914 Jeffery Six Model 96 Five-Passenger Touring

Thomas B. Jeffery is often overshadowed by his more famous Rambler automobile, rather than the one that carried his name. Interestingly, it was his son Charles who decided to transform the family name into a brand in 1914. This decision came after Thomas B. Jeffery’s passing four years prior, and it was seen as a fitting tribute to honor his memory with the new car.

The Jeffery automobile boasted a remarkably modern design, featuring a 40 horsepower monobloc four-cylinder engine, left-hand steering, and a larger companion with a 48 horsepower six-cylinder engine. In its first year of production, over 10,000 cars were manufactured.
