CHALMERS-DETROIT Race Car Winner 1908 photo picture print photograph for sale. This CHALMERS-DETROIT 1908 racer photo picture print for sale shows the checkered flag coming down (on left side of photo) as, amidst a cloud of dust on the Motor Parkway Auto Race Track. This rare image is from one of the earliest days of automobile racing featuring the CHALMERS-DETROIT racer produced in Detroit.

Chalmers Motor Car Company was a United States based automobile company located in Detroit, Michigan. It was named after Hugh Chalmers of the National Cash Register Company. The brand is owned by Chrysler.The Chalmers Company was formed when Hugh Chalmers bought out the interests of ER Thomas in the Thomas-Detroit company in 1908, and renamed the company Chalmers-Detroit.The name was changed to Chalmers in 1911.Chalmers flourished in the 1910s and then faltered in the 1920s post-World War I recession. It merged with the Maxwell Automobile Company, forerunner of Chrysler, in 1922, and ended all production in late 1923. This is a very rare historic photo from 1909 as the Chalmers-Detroit insignia on the front of the radiator, as seen in this CHALMERS-DETROIT photo print for sale, was only used during 1909 and 1910---in between name changes and ownerships.

The quality of the Jan Kaulins' photographic prints is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
