Detroit Motor Car Supply Company

Detroit Motor Car Supply Company built their vertical two cycle stationary hopper cooled engines in size 2.5, 4 & 6 horse with a single flywheel. First introduced in 1911 sporting a unique looking round tapered water hopper that was bolted to the top of the head and cylinder sometimes referred to as the "Spit-toon engine" or "Tulip top Engine". They are fairly rare to engine collectors especially 4 & 6 hp engines. Some collectors just like them because they are very unusual & unique looking.
