The Republic Automobile Company
Hamilton, Ohio
1910-1916

The Republic Automobile Company built an American Automobile called the Republic in Hamilton, Ohio from 1910 to 1916.

The company was initially organized as the Imperial Motor Car Company in July of 1909. However by 1910 the name was changed to The Republic Automobile Company due to another American Automobile called the Imperial made in Jackson, Michigan.

George Adam Rentschier was president of The Republic Automobile Company and several other business in Hamilton, Ohio. The board of director's consisted of C. U. Carpenter, George H. Helvey and George Stanley Helvey.

The Republic Automobile Company's slogan was "Built As Well As The Best, Classiest Of All". The Republic was not necessary the classiest of all but it was a nice looking car and was well made with 116 inch wheelbase. The 1911 Republic sold for $2,000.00. According to the advertisement below 150 Republic automobiles were produced in 1911.

The 1911, 1912 and 1913 Republic's were equipped with a water cooled 4 1/4 inch bore x 5 inch stroke four cylinder engine that was rated at 35 horsepower. The transmission was a selective type with three speeds forward and one reverse with shaft drive. A 5 passenger touring car and a 2 passenger torpedo roadster was built in 1911.

By 1912 Republic production included 35-40 horsepower four cylinder 120 inch wheelbase Model 111 five passenger touring car, model 112 two passenger roadster and a model 113 four passenger toy tonneau.

The Republic came equipped with either a 28.9 horsepower four cylinder or a 43 horsepower six cylinder in 1913. Republic production with a 4 cylinder engine included 6 passenger touring car, 4 passenger tonneau and 2 passenger roadster. Six cylinder production included 5 passenger touring, 7 passenger touring, 4 passenger tonneau and 2 passenger roadster.

In 1914, 1915 and 1916, Republic production included only a 43 horsepower six cylinder 7 passenger touring car and a 5 passenger touring car. Manufacture of the Republic ceased on January 1, 1917 due to material shortages of the first World War.

The Republic Automobile Company never left Hamilton, Ohio. Reports that the Republic was produced in Tarrytown, NY in its final years are not true. In 1913 William C. Durant chose the name Republic when he set up a holding company to buy the old Maxwell-Briscoe plant in Tarrytown, NY and the Little Motor Car Co. of Flint, MI. Durant's new firm was called Republic Motor Company. However, he never produced an automobile by that name at either location.
