Default Vintage Ad of the Day - December

Vintage Ads for November

December 1 - A different ad for the Callahan engines manufactured by W.P. Callahan & Co. of Dayton, Ohio.



And if you want to see the real thing, here is a video of a 16 HP Callahan at the Coolspring Museum...super nice!

Jeff, well its a bit or irony that you posted an ad for Callahan on Dec. 1 and on Dec. 2 we have a post on the Stak about one that has just been found in the wild. Maybe we'll get a post tomorrow that a Weeber engine has just showed up!

December 3 - 1905 ad for gasoline engines manufactured by the International Harvester Company of America. I noticed no 4 HP horizontal engines yet, nice heavy brass tag, and looks like Michigan oiler on these early IHC engines. "You simply cannot afford to be without one."

Hi Jeff, I've been following your vintage Ad of the day thread with great interest but I don't think I've seen one yet about Jacobson Machine Mfg, Co., Warren, Pa. If you run across anything "JACOBSON" I would love to see it.
Thanks!

December 6 - Ad for the "Red and Ready" and "Havana" gas and gasoline engines manufactured by the Havana Manufacturing Company of Havana, Illinois.

Denis, my gas power books only cover 1904 to 1906. I haven't seen any Jacobson ads. So either they weren't manufacturing engines yet or they weren't advertising in Gas Power yet?

December 8 - Here is the February 1905 cover. Anybody know who made the rig shown in the illustration? Sometimes it says on the issue's index of manufacturers, but I couldn't find anything.

It appears to be a Hornsby-Akroyd/DeLavergne. Just a guess but very similar features to the ones we have.

December 8 - 1905 ad for the McVicker automatic engines manufactured by The MicVicker Gasoline Engine of Alma, Michigan. "Better than a horse" because it "only eats when it's working". Guess that Dodge commercial with Ron Burgundy comparing a Dodge Durango to a horse was done 107 years ago.

Chris, do you know much history on your Callahan? I know it came from Harold Ottaway in the late 80's or early 90's but I didn't know any of the history prior to that date. If it was like many of the engines Harold had, it may have come out of a grain elevator in the 50's or 60's.

Also.....you think I had forgot you on a carb....well yes, I had sort of. I remember it last week when I was in the barn as saw the engine sitting there. However, its been COLD here (13 degrees this morning) and the engine is in an unheated space. Its supposed to warm up some this weekend (mid 40's) and I'll get it off for you.

Tommy, it came out of Conway , Kansas where it pumped water for the railroad. I would guess late sixtys. Was told Harold paid all of 35 dollars for it, found it while going to get, look at a 40-70 Flour City. Ahh..If I was only born thirty years earlier.
And thanks on the mixer. Stay warm.
Jeff the engine looks like a Davis/waterloo page 538 byb.
