1906 Hatfield type D

1906 Hatfield type D. The Hatfield has an aircooled, 12 hp two-cilinder engine, which drives the rear wheels by means of a chain.

 

Hatfield Motor Vehicle Company was a pioneer brass era American automobile company in Miamisburg, Ohio, USA. The company was incorporated in 1906 by Charles B. Hatfield, Sr. in Cortland, New York, but soon moved to Miamisburg.

Variously calling the car the Buggyabout and Unique, it was a high wheeler with an aircooled two-cylinder four-stroke engine, friction transmission, and chain drive. It offered solid tires on large wheels (38 in {96.5 cm} front, 40 in {102 cm} back). Hatfield bodies and chassis were provided by Kauffman Buggy Company, located across town, and as receivership loomed in spring 1908, Hatfield merged with Kauffman to form Advance Motor Vehicle Company in June.
