The Story: In the period of 1913-1915, there was a cyclecar craze in the United States. Cyclecars provided a relatively inexpensive and fun way to own an automobile. William B. Stout, who later built the Ford Tri-Motor airplane and Stout Scarab, designed the Imp and sold the idea to the McIntyre Company. The W. H. McIntyre Company set up a new division, the Imp Cyclecar Company. The Imp was produced only in 1913 and 1914.
Technical: This 1913 Imp Cyclecar is powered by a two-cylinder V, air-cooled engine. With a displacement of 69.9 cubic inches, this motor produces fifteen horsepower. The wheelbase of this two-passenger cyclecar measures 100 inches. A new Imp Cyclecar cost $375 in 1913.
