Join the Chattanooga Area Historical Association as we tour the antique car collection of Harold Coker and view the 1910 Nyberg Speedster—one of only three known to be in existence.
The tour will be held on Saturday, Sept. 21, from 11am to 1pm. The program is free, and open to the public. The Coker farm is located at 6730 Standifer Gap Road in Chattanooga.
According to William Hull in Legendary Locals of Chattanooga, “Henry Nyberg was a Chicagoan, who built a plant in Chattanooga (he had another one in Indiana) to make the Nyberg in 1911. He built powerful long-stroke motors and luxury cars in 22 styles—the Dixie Special being one of those constructed here. Whereas Ford Model Ts might run $400, a Nyberg cost $1,900. They featured sturdy V-6 engines, were large, roomy, and very comfortable to ride in, with notably ‘soft cushions.’ The varnish was even unusually high quality-billed as ‘dust, water, and soap proof.’”
