Ohio AMX created the topic: Fred Duesenberg: Rambler Test Driver
Image from the Wisconsin Historical Society depicts Fred Duesenberg test driving a 1901 Rambler Model B pulling a loaded wagon. According to the caption: Thomas B. Jeffery's first Rambler automobile during a test for strength in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Some features of this prototype, such as the steering wheel were considered too advanced for that day. The Rambler Jeffery's offered to the public in 1902 substituted a conventional tiller-type steering mechanism. The Rambler was one of the best known of the early Wisconsin automobiles.
