Locomobile came into being in 1899 selling a steam-powered runabout that was based on the Stanley brother’s steam car design. The company sold steam cars until 1903 when it switched to a gasoline powered design. Locomobile was successful in selling its cars to the high-end, luxury market until 1920 when its financial troubles began.
In 1922, Durant Motors acquired Locomobile and positioned the car as the most expensive car in its product line. Locomobile continued to produce cars until 1929.
The Locomobile Catalog is limited to the cars produced while Locomobile was under the control of Durant from 1922 to 1929
