1904 Pope-Toledo Four-Cylinder Rear-Entrance Tonneau
Offered by Bonhams | Amelia Island, Florida | March 7, 2019
Once upon a time, there was a car called the Toledo, and it produced between 1901 and 1903, in… well, Toledo, Ohio. They sold both steam and gasoline-powered cars. In 1904, Albert Pope bought the factory, and the cars became known as the Pope-Toledo, though they were gasoline-only. Of all of his different brands, these were the best cars that Pope built. His flagship marque, if you will.
1904 was the first year for Pope-Toledo production and two models were offered: a twin and a four-cylinder. This is a nice example of the latter and would’ve cost $3,500 when new. It is powered by a 24 horsepower, 3.4-liter inline-four.
It looks to be a great example – and it’s wearing white tires! It should sell for between $150,000-$220,000. Click here for more info.
Update: Sold $134,400.
