The Autocrat is an excellent example of a great early day sports car and reflects the speed, power and endurance that were being sought by most automakers at the time. This car had many �larger than life� features, from the engine�s 12-quart oil capacity to its 40-gallon gas tank to its tires, each three feet in diameter. Only 500 of these cars were built in 1912; there is thought to be perhaps one other remaining besides this one.
