Additional features included a Stromberg carburetor, Delco ignition, Bijur starting and lighting, Borg & Beck Clutch, Warren three speed transmission, Stewart Speedometer, Exide Battery, Wood or Wire wheels and 33 inch x 4 inch Goodrich tires.

The Adria was only produced in 1920 and 1921. The Parenti Motors Corp. in near by Buffalo, NY brought forth legal action against The Adria Motor Car Corp. Seems that the Adria not only coveted but incorporated into its design a non-load carring axle that Parenti patented.
