Powered by a 10-horsepower, single-cylinder engine and costing $750, the car sold out at its introduction during the 1903 New York Automobile Show. The first Cadillac engine used mechanically actuated overhead valves and a square bore-stroke ratio. Steering was by a rack-and-pinion gear. An early innovation was the use of special split-core fasteners, which locked a nut on its thread with no need for lock washers.

The featured example is only lightly restored, repainted and revarnished. It is seen here at the 2002 Goodwood Festival of Speed where it was part of the Cartier 'Style et Luxe' concours d'elegance.
