1914 O-we-Go

The O-We-Go was an American cyclecar manufactured in 1914. The tandem-seat automobile sold for $385; it was built in Owego, New York. At least one car is still known to survive.

Production of the O-We-Go began in 1914 amid great expectations for success. It was not to be. Due to the reduction in the cost of Ford’s Model T, as well as the general dissatisfaction with light cyclecars, the fad ceased as quickly as it started, and the company entered into voluntary bankruptcy. In 1916, C.B. Hatfield, Jr. reconfigured the O-We-Go and sold it in kit form which could be purchased complete, or piece-by-piece under the name Tribune. The only known surviving O-We-Go is currently on display at the Northeast Classic Car Museum.
