1912 Pope Hartford Model 27 (page 188-191; Edited for Model 27)
The 1912 Pope-Hartford line, comprising four and six cylinder models in many distinctive body styles is probably the best showing ever made by the Pope Company. The four cylinder car is available in nine different body designs, eight of which serve as prototypes for corresponding six cylinder models.
Two distinct types are made, Model 27, a _four cylinder chassis, rated at 50 h. p., and Model 28, a six cylinder chassis, rated at 60 h. p. The Phaeton and Berlin type of limousine and landaulet are distinctly new types for 1912, but all other body types have been subjected to certain refinements. Notable among these body improvements are the removable front doors, no signs of the hinges being visible when the doors are removed. The five and seven passenger bodies are wider than heretofore at the point where the gear shift lever is located, and a new style of dash, the same height as the sides of the body, greatly enhances the appearance of the car.
The new 1912 Pope-Hartfords are as follows:
- Seven-passenger Touring car
- Five-passenger fore door Touring car
- Fore door Roadster
- Five-passenger battleship type
