Eustis Estate

W.E.C. Eustis in His Autocar Model VIII, c. 1904

The 1904 Autocar Model VIII may be the first automobile purchased by W.E.C. Eustis. This touring car is one of the early examples of left-side steering in the United States though this edition used a tiller system instead of a steering wheel. The Autocar Company was founded by Lewis and John Clark in 1899 in Ardmore, Pennsylvania; the company had a reputation for reliability and continues to manufacture commercial trucks to this day.
