Dyke single cylinder, horizontal, water cooled engine
Horse power is 6 @750 RPM
The throttle was fixed wide open so it wouldn't stall and the engine speed was controlled by a spark.
The speed of the vehicle was controlled by a combination of spark and the 3 speed transmission but because the shifting of the gears was less than smooth it was said passengers were tossed right out of the car !!
Built by Corneilus Ryerson of Queen City Cycle & Motor Works who built a couple of cars before returning excusively to the bicycle business
In 1948 the Queen was found in pieces in Toronto by a couple of restoration specialists from Chicago. They didn't know what it was but they knew it was special !! Pieces were found all over the neighborhood...the car body was hanging on a shed wall...the leather seat was being used as a sofa
After lots of hard work and sleuthing they were able to restore the car and displayed it back in Chicago. In 1974 the car was returned to Canada
