This 1908 Clyde Silent Light roadster is an extremely rare and unique automobile. The Clyde was manufactured by the G.H Wait Co. of Leicester, England. The company made cars and motorcycles from 1901 to 1931, yet only 260 examples were produced. This is one of only two known to remain, and is the only one in the U.S. The engine is a White and Poppe mounted transversely: a vertical twin that provides 8 hp through a silent block chain to the rear-mounted transaxle. All ancillary systems are likewise chain-driven.
