The Clarkmobile Company was founded by Frank G. Clark and William Newbrough of Lansing, Michigan. They produced an American Automobile called the Clarkmobile. The 1,100 pound two passenger Roadster shown below first appeared in 1903 and it was marvel of innovative features.

The $750.00 Clarkmobile was equipped with a self starting single cylinder horizontal four cycle engine with a 5 inch bore rated at 7 horsepower. The speed of the engine was controlled by foot lever which allowed a speed of 5 to 30 miles per hour. Transmission was made by Upton and had two speeds forward and reverse. Final drive was by a single chain.

The Clarkmobile Company transferred its patents and other properties to New Way Motor in 1905. The New Way Motor Company produced Clarkmobile automobiles until 1907. It then produced a engine that was used in agricultural and marine use for many years.
