Apperson Owners Group

The Apperson was a brand of American automobile manufactured from 1901 to 1926 in Kolomo, Indiana.

The company was founded by the brothers Edgar and Elmer Apperson  shortly after they left Haynes-Apperson ; for a time they continued to use a FR layoutont-mounted flat-twin engine, following it with a horizontal four.

By 1904, Apperson offered vertical fours in two models.  The 1904 Apperson Touring Car was a touring car model.  Equipped with a tonneau, it could seat 6 passengers and sold for US$6000.  The vertical-mounted straight-4, situated at the front of the car, produced 40 hp (29.8 kW).  A 4-speed transmission was fitted.  The steel-framed car weighed 2800 lb (1270 kg).  The Apperson offered electric lights, a novelty for the time, and used a modern cellular radiator.  The 25 hp (18.6 kW) version weighed 1800 lb (816 kg) and sold for US$3500.

In 1906 the company catalogued a 95 hp (71 kW) four at $10,500.  The next year the first of the famed Jackrabbit speedsters rolled off the line; this was a 60 hp (45 kW) that sold for $5000.  For a time, the entire range was known as the "Jack Rabbit" - in 1913 a 32.4 hp (24 kW) four and a 33.7 hp (25 kW) six were listed, and a 33.8 hp (25 kW) 90-degree V-8 of 5.5 L (5502 cc/335 in3) followed in 1914.
