The SS Suburban, built in Bellevue, Nebraska, was initially conceived as a competitor to the King Midget which was a very basic Ohio-built car. It is believed that five cars were built and tested. The car seen here is considered to be the only one left.
The testing was not encouraging as the single cylinder, 12 hp Briggs & Stratton engine vibrated the whole car. Road handling was also poor, and with no top or windows, amenities were non-existent. With all these factors against the car, as well as looming safety and emissions regulation, the company decided wisely to close its doors.
