The A. L. Dyke Automobile Supply Co.
St Louis, MO

Andrew Lee Dyke was in the American Automobile manufacturer and auto parts dealer from 1896 to 1904. He produced a electric Runabout kit car in 1898, a gasoline powered Runabout in 1900 and Touring Cars up 1904 when he sold his business to his partners Robert and Roy Britton.

Dyke designed the Dyke-Britton just before he sold The A. L. Dyke Automobile Supply Co. to the Britton's.

The Dyke-Britton was a very unique automobile, being capable of appearing as a runabout without tonneau attachment, a tonneau touring car, a limousine with coupe back and a canopy top car with glass front. The dyke-Britton sold for $2500.00 in 1904.

Showing the various styles which the car can he changed Into

The black portion of the above image shows it to be a single seated runabout with an extra long wheel base. The tonneau attachment shown in the lower left can be slipped into place and the touring car is complete. By substituting the coupe portion illustrated in the upper left you have a side entrance limousine and the use of the canopy top and glass front shown above the car gives a fully equipped canopy top machine. Any of the attachments could be secured in position in a few minutes and when fastened it was impossible to detect that they were not of solid construction with the rest of the automobile.
