1906 Adams Farwell
Pictures of the 1906 Adams-Farwell Runabout automobile on display at the National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada.
The Adams Company was formed in 1895 in Dubuque, Iowa when F. O. Farwell joined Herbert and Eugene Adams in their experiments with gasoline engines. They produced a unique air-cooled engine in which the crankshaft was anchored solidly to the rear frame and the cylinders rotated around it enabling the engine to serve as its own flywheel and receive excellent cooling. In addition, the centrifugal force acted like a horizontal gyroscope that tended to hold the car level.
After 1908 the company introduced no new models and went out of business in 1913.
Approximately 52 Adams-Farwell cars were made and this 1906 model is the only one known to exist today.
