This was a slow week in auto history.
A not so small feat was the formation of the Little Motor Car Co on 10/30/1911 – The Little was an automobile built in Flint, Michigan by the Little Motor Car Company from 1912-15. The Little first was available as a two-seater with a four-cylinder 20 hp engine, and had a wheelbase of 7 ft 7 in (2,310 mm) . In 1914 a 3.6 L six-cylinder L-head engine was available in a later model that had a larger chassis. This was phased out in 1915 as it was too close in size and price to the Chevrolet Six. Durant merged the Little Company and Chevrolet in 1913, gave the Chevrolet name to the Little car and moved manufacturing from the Detroit plant to Flint.
On Nov 1, 1955 Studebaker debuted the “Hawk”. – Hawk came in the Power, Sky, Golden, Flight in it’s first production year 1956. Want to talk rare cars? How about the Flight Hawk in the K7 body type – only 560 produced. The Power Hawk numbered 7,095; Sky Hawks 3,050 and the Golding Hawk came in at 4,071.
On Oct 2, 1935 two debuts for you -
