1904-1909 USA

The town of Toledo, Ohio, provided the name for this Pope make that carried on where the Toledo steamers and petrol cars left off. Initially two and four-cylinder cars were made but it was the latter model, with a 24hp engine of 4.9-litres, that established the make. A stripped 'stock' car won several production car races on the West Coast and another example took third place in the Vanderbilt Cup race on Long Island, although two laps down on the duo of leading pure racing cars. The cars were expensive and well made but it was financial problems elsewhere in the Pope organisation that brought an end to the Pope-Toledo. John North Willys bought the factory for production of his Overland cars.
