A 1904 Cadillac produced by Cadillac Motor Car Company, Detroit, Michigan. The company began in 1902. Automotive entrepreneur, machinist, and inventor Henry M. Leland created the Cadillac. Leland later founded Lincoln Motor Company.
The Model-A Cadillac was markedly similar to the early Fords in having a horizontal underfloor engine and central chain drive via a spur-type differential. Later improvements included rack and pinion steering. Other features included a 1-cylinder, 8 horsepower engine; a 1½ litre inlet over exhaust power unit, and 2-speed planetary transmission.
