Made by Howard Earle Coffin at a cost of $400 in 1901. This is a two-cylinder car with a pilot light, boiler, and a chain drive.

This car, the only surviving example, was once in the Henry Ford Museum. It was purchased by Feltz Terrill, a local peanut farmer in De Leon Texas.[1]

Visit this car at the Terrill Antique Car Museum at 500 N. Texas Street, De Deon, TX 76444 254) 893-3773.

Howard Coffin went on to work for Hudson, where he designed, among other cars, the Hudson Light Six-40 Phaeton.

John Conde, the Henry Ford Museum's Curator of Transportation, assembled an important file of information on the Coffin Steam Carriage.
