Description: 1911 Cole Model 30 Torpedo Roadster
Engine 4-Cylinder, L-Head, 286.3 cid, 36 hp
Wheelbase: 118 inches
Price New: $1,600
The Series 30 Cole was very successful in racing events both on the East coast and Western United States. The Massapequa Trophy was won in the Venderbilt Cup Race of 1910 and, with Bill Endicott driving, won the 24-hour Marathon at Brighton Beach, New York.

A Cole engine was installed in a Wright airplane and flown from San Francisco in a cross-country race in 1911 becoming the first to fly from the West to the East.

After 1915, only V-8 engines were offered and Cole pioneered in the use of balloon tires. Joseph Cole refused an opportunity to become a part of General Motors and continued to produce high quality cars assembled from carefully chosen components.
