FIRESTONE COLUMBUS radiator emblem
The FIRESTONE COLUMBUS made in 1907 and 1908 was a high wheeled buggy.
There is no relation between FIRESTONE COLUMBUS and FIRESTONE tyres.
For the years 1909 to 1911 a "Mechanical Greyhound" roadster was built as well as a five - seater car. The two seater roadster had a 26hp engine. Some closed models were offered in 1913 and 1914 [Georgano].
In 1914 the founder Clinton Firestone was found dead at his apartment in a hotel. That was the end of this short living firm.
