1914 Abbott-Detroit Belle Isle Model F 7-Passenger Touring Car

Believed to be the only one in existence.
J. J. Best Banc & Co.

For the 1914 model year, Abbott-Detroit added the Belle Isle six cylinder. This product incorporated many chassis and body improvements as well as marked the entry of this company into the six-cylinder field. The Continental motor has a bore of 3 ¾ inches and a stroke of 5 ¼ inches. Its cylinders are of the L-head type and are cast in threes. Cooling water is circulated through the cylinder jackets and the cellular radiator by a centrifugal pump and air is drawn through the radiator by means of a belt driven pressed steel fan with eccentric adjustment of the belt tension. Ignition is effected by means of a Bosch high tension magneto. Aside from the magneto there is another source of ignition current for starting, the Electric Auto-Lite Company’s storage battery of the electric lighting and starting system.

A dry disc clutch is used, together with a selective sliding gear, affording four forward speeds and a reverse, of which the third forward is the direct drive, the fourth speed being 25 percent higher than the direct drive and intended for road speeds above 35 mph.

Other features are left hand steer and center control. All lighting and ignition switches and operating levers are with easy reach of the driver’s seat. Both sets of brakes, expanding and contracting, are fitted to the rear wheels.

This car has been on several Glidden and Snapper Tours. It is equipped with a full set of side curtains and front and rear tonneaus as well as a rear windscreen in order to protect the rear seat passengers from rain and wind. This 7 passenger touring car has plenty of room for 5 people in the back or more than ample space for luggage for those cross country tours. The car remains in wonderful condition and is ready to show or tour. It will cruise comfortably at 60 mph and is equipped with a 4th gear overdrive. This 1914 Abbott-Detroit touring car is believed to be the only one in existence.
