The Colburn Automobile Co.
Denver, Colorado
1906-1911

The Colburn Automobile Co. was formed by Judge Ernest A. Colburn, pioneer and wealthy mining man from Cripple Creek, Colorado. The Colburn was designed and build by his two sons, Ernest A. Colburn, Jr. and H. C. Colburn.

The Colburn was built in Colorado and this state was not a particularly good place for American Automobiles.

The Colburn brothers built the first four cylinder engine especially designed to perform in high altitudes. Colburn automobiles were very popular in the Rocky Mountain territory.

A new Colburn called the "Skyscraper" (shown above) entered the market in 1908. It had the same high altitude four cylinder engine as the "Rex Alta".
