The most famous Locomobile was Old 16, a gasoline-engined automobile that was the winner of the 1908 Vanderbilt Cup Race.

Before that, from 1899 to 1904, Locomobile built steam-engined cars. This twin-cylinder reversing steam engine is representative of those used to power automobiles such as the Stanley. A drive chain connected the engine sprocket to the rear axle.
