The F. A. Woods Auto Co.
Chicago, Illinois

Francis A. Woods of Chicago, Illinois experimented with an American Electric Car called the Interurban in the early 1900s.

Although the Interurban never went into production it is interesting to know that plans called for the electric motor to be interchangeable with a gas engine. A two cylinder internal combustion engine rated at 8 horsepower was to be interchangeable with it's electric motor.

The electric motor was to be use for short trips and the gasoline engine for longer trips. The F. A. Woods Auto Co. was established for manufacture in Chicago, Illinois. Very few of these American Electric Cars were made. Francis Woods later turned his attention to the production of the American Cyclecar called the Woods Mobilette Cyclecar that first appeared as a prototype in 1910.
