1931 Custer Cootie Special

Second Floor - Industry

The Custer Specialty Co. was established in 1920 and produced miniature automobiles with either gasoline or electric power. With a full body, narrow hood, and fenders with running boards, the Cootie was Custer’s best-selling vehicle. Because it was electric, it was simple to include headlights as standard equipment, which allowed it to be registered for street use in many states. The Custer Cootie was featured in the catalogues of F.A.O. Schwartz of New York.
