Story

Story

The steam car developed by Rollin H. White of Cleveland, Ohio, entered production in 1900 and White became one of the more successful steam car builders.  White entered gasoline-powered vehicle production with the 1910 White Model G-A, as displayed here, and a larger Model G-B.  The Model G-A was powered by a 4-cylinder 20 hp engine and employed a 4-speed transmission and shaft drive.

The right-hand drive Model G-A was produced only in 1910 and all later White cars and trucks were built with left-hand drive.  White gasoline-powered vehicles were so much in demand that sales of their steam “cousins” declined sharply and ceased altogether at the end of 1910.   Beginning in 1918, White only produced trucks.
