This Mitchell Light Six is one of two six-passenger touring models known to survive today. Typical of Mitchell quality, it features an engine of the company’s own design and construction: an F-head unit with a four-inch bore and a 5.5-inch stroke, which utilizes a cooling system that combines a circulating water pump and a thermo-siphoning system. An on-off sliding switch on the dashboard indicates when the engine is running and when the generator is charging. The car was built to handle the Midwestern roads typical in the Racine area, as it boasts a 4.49:1 rear axle ratio, which allows it to pull through difficult road conditions. Particularly thoughtful are the headlights, which flip around to illuminate the engine when performing emergency roadside repairs at night.
