1931 Custer Cootie Special
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.
