The small cars that were built by Frank Briscoe and Alan Brush between 1907 and 1911 were of a particularly good quality. Most of them were Runabouts, open two-seaters without roofs, doors, and windows that sold well mainly in the warmer parts of the United States. The one-cylinder engines delivered 7 and 10 bhp.
In 1908, the make hit the headlines when Fred Trinkle drove from the east to the west coast of the United States in a Brush. En passant he climbed the Pikes Peak in Colorado in his little car. Only two cars had climbed this Peak before. The 'road' was only 37 kilometres long, but the drive took all day.
