The Payne-Modern was built in Erie between 1907 and 1908 by Calvin Payne, and his son Frank. The car used air-cooled V4 and V6 engines of 24hp and 36hp, a 4-speed gearbox and shaft drive. Unusually, the gear change was located on the steering wheel, rather than externally. The 24hp model sold for $2,000, while the 36hp model sold for $4,000. The high prices and complication engineering were probably the main reasons why the car was made for such a short time.
