Winton Model K Touring - 1906

Alexander Winton built his first American automobile in 1896. His advertisements carried the slogan ‘Dispense with a Horse!’ From the very beginning Winton knew that racing was the key to selling his automobiles. He first raced the clock at the Glenville track in Cleveland, then tried several other road races from Cleveland to New York. The Winton Racers were driven by Winton, Barney Oldfield and Earl H. Kiser. By 1905 Winton had blazed the trail of the American-built race car and had proved that the Winton automobile was one of the best. At this point, his focus shifted from racing to promoting his new Model K Touring car. Using the same 4-cylinder 40 horsepower engine from the successful race car, the Winton Bullet No. 3, the Model K led to his most successful motor car, the Winton Six.

Alexander Winton was an immigrant from Scotland who, upon arriving to America, opened the Winton Bicycle Company. He had also worked on a steamship as an engineer.

The Winton Motor Carriage Company of Cleveland, Ohio is credited with being the first company in the United States to sell a motor car. The vehicles were termed ‘horseless carriages’ and included gas lamps, padded seats, and rubber tires made by the Goodrich Rubber Company of Akron, Ohio. Winton is credited with more than 100 patents.
