The Smith Automobile Co.
Topeka, Kansas

The Smith Automobile Co. produced an American Automobile beginning in 1903. It was called the Veracity and was produced by Clement and Lucius Smith along with engineer Terry Stafford. On August 26, 1905 The Smith Truss Company, the firm who built the Veracity, reorganized as The Smith Automobile Co. It was at this time that the Smith Company stopped using the Veracity name and offered two new automobiles.

The Smith Automobile Co. offered two distinctively different models in 1905, a Surry shown above and a Runabout. The 1905 Smith 18 horsepower Surrey was priced at $1,600.00 and the 1905 Smith 10 horsepower Runabout $1,250.00. The major change in Veracity to the Smith cars were in the painting. The Surrey was now blue and its Runabout red. The 1905 Smith's did scrap the stub nose front of the Runabout for a hood and upright radiator. Although the engines were still under the seat.

Customers who wanted a 2 in 1 automobile would buy the Surrey. By removing the back Tonneau it converted the 18 horsepower Surrey into a stylish powerful Runabout.

In 1906, Terry Stafford and Clement Smith had further refined the Smith automobile. By the end of 1905 they finished the design of the new 24 horsepower in line four cylinder engines with a three speed transmission and equipped this engine in the 1906 Smith automobiles. The above 1906 Smith advertisement claimed "The Graceful Smith. $2,500.00 For Our Leading Model, Completely Equipped". What was in store for The Smith Automobile Co. in 1907? The Great Smith automobile!
