A 1903 Thomas B. Jeffery Rambler, the model owned by Edward H. Strahorn

Thomas B. Jeffery started commercially mass-producing automobiles in 1902 and by the end of the year had produced 1,500 motorcars, one-sixth of all existing motorcars up to that point. The Thomas B. Jeffery Company was the second largest auto manufacturer in America, behind Oldsmobile. 1,350 additional automobiles were produced in 1903, so Edward's #2337 was likely produced in 1903. Mr. Jeffery boarded the ship RMS Lusitania on 1 May 1915 to travel to France to discuss a contract for the sale of Jeffery Armored Cars. He survived the sinking of the Lusitania, and reflecting on his escape, decided to step back and enjoy the remainder of his life pursuing travel and leisure. So in 1916 he sold out to the Nash company, and the combined enterprise was renamed Nash Rambler, which was eventually merged with Hudson Motors in 1954 to create American Motors Corporation. (AMC)
