Moline-Knight
The Moline Automobile Co.
East Moline, Illinois
1914-1919

The Moline Automobile Company was formed in 1904 by William H. VanDerVoort and Orlando J. Root. They built gasoline engines with a company called Root and Vandervoort Engineering Co. in Moline, IL.

In 1904 The Moline Automobile Company was formed to build the Moline. By 1914 the name changed to Moline-Knight and in 1920 the name was changed to R&V Knight.

In the advertising below The Moline Automobile Co. claimed "More Power, More Flexibility, More Economy and More Silence" out of its Knight engine. The Knight Engine was an internal combustion engine designed by Charles Yale Knight. His engine used sleeve valves instead of the more common poppet valves. When The Moline Automobile Co. acquired a license for the Knight engine in 1914 the Moline name was changed to Moline Knight.
