The Quick was an American automobile produced from 1899 to 1900. Although in most ways a conventional car, it is memorable for being the first American car to use an overhead camshaft production unit. Its engine was twin-cylinder, and had a chain-driven overhead camshaft which could develop a heady 4 bhp (3.0 kW) at 700 rpm.
