Hmmm. My first-printing catalog has it as Goddu. It also says it was a single passenger car.

I was lucky to contact the previous owner who sold the car some years ago when he began the move to Europe. He advised briefly that “ the wheels and tires are original and 'single tube' like very early steamers. Goddeu was the inventor of the staple. Like Edison he did cutting edge work. The machine has a rear boxer twin and two clutch/gear transmission. This was his patent test bed for automotive ideas and used to assure his investors his ideas would work. It wasn't restored, only maintained all it's life.”

Regards and Merry Christmas to all !
