1898-1904

One of the most important men associated with early American Automobile manufacturing was Andrew Lee Dyke in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

A. L. Dyke was born in Dykesville, Louisiana in 1875 and made his fortune in St. Louis, Missouri as a pioneer in the automobile supply business and kit car business. Dyke supplied parts catalogs and wrote many books about the Automobile.

His first experiment was with a gasoline vehicle in 1896. His first practical automobile was an electric Runabout and a Stanhope in 1898 with a company known as The St. Louis Electric Automobile Co. The Dyke Electric was equipped with a 2 1/2 horsepower electric motor and a Willard battery. Dyke sold this company to The Scott automobile Company in 1901.

In 1899 Dyke established The St Louis Automobile & Supply Co (a consolidation of The St Louis Electric Automobile Co and The Automobile Supply Co.) and sold automobile parts along with all the components needed to build an automobile. A variety of designs were offered with engines from 6 to 12 horsepower with body styles of two, four and five passengers.

Dyke Called his American Automobiles "Outfits" and he provided to the home mechanic a No.0 Runabout (shown above), a No. 1 medium weight Touring Cars (shown below) and a No. 2 Delivery Wagon.

Early in 1904 A. L. Dyke Automobile Supply Co. produced the Dyke-Britton, a Touring Car very similar to the Dyke automobile features above. On August 30, 1904 A. L. Dyke sold The A. L. Dyke Automobile Supply Co. to his partners Robert and Roy Britton. A. L. Dyke then devoted much of his time in writing automotive books.
