Altman (automobile)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Altman was an early automobile produced in 1901 in Cleveland, Ohio, by Henry J. Altman.[1] Altman built the car at his home at 11 Pier Street, with his wife helping assemble the radiator in the kitchen.[1] The car featured a two-cylinder engine suspended midship under the seat.[1] In 1909 Altman converted the tonneau body to a roadster before selling the car to a local paperhanger for $200.[1] Whether Altman built more cars is unknown.
