The Woods Mobilette Company was founded by Francis A. Woods, in Harvey, Illinois. This car manufacturer was promoted as having America's first "cyclecar." The 4 cylinder engine was rated at 12 horsepower and the Woods Mobilette was built in 1913, 1914, 1915 and 1916 in no great number. Woods announced models for 1917 but sales never took off and none were manufactured.
