1910 Lozier Type 77

It’s a great, American brand of the past that not many people remember today. I think it can be put on a par with Thomas Flyer, or Peerless cars. Although the latter at this time released models with much larger engines, but Lozier cars were also very comfortable, technologically advanced and expensive.
From 1910 to 1917, 236 Lozier Type 77s were produced. The price of a new 1910 Lozier Type 77 started at $4,600 and went up to $7,750. The price of a Lozier car was comparable to a Thomas Flyer. Probably it should be said that already at that time Type 77 was equipped with electric headlights and electric starter. The production of the model was carried out in Detroit, soon after moving from the old factory.
Interestingly, the Lozier company started as a bicycle manufacturer. Although the company later became one of the most chic car manufacturers in America, it didn’t even make it to the 20s, let alone the Great Depression, when many great automobile brands died.

Wooden spoke rims were the norm for the time. Artillery type rims were fitted with 36 inch diameter firestone tires. There were many Type 77s with removable roofs. The fenders over the wheels and the running boards were made of a single panel. Above the footrests, but under the sills you can see closed boxes for things. Speaking about technology, I want to emphasize that the indicator lights were installed in the main headlights.

Unlike many American cars of those years, the steering wheel is installed on the left side. The windshield can be folded and change the angle of inclination. The speedometer is programmed to 60 mph, and the gearbox and parking brake lever are located in the passenger compartment, between the driver and front passenger. At the time, many manufacturers moved these controls outside the passenger compartment.

Under the hood of the car Lozier installed in-line, six-cylinder engine with a capacity of 6.4 liters and 50 horsepower. Transmission is of course manual, three-speed, brakes are drum, with mechanical drive only on the rear axle.

This is a high-class, but unfortunately forgotten by many people. Only wealthy Americans could afford a new Lozier. I would like to get more information about this amazing car, but unluckily there is very little data about this brand.
