Thomas B. Jeffery


Thomas B. Jeffery came to the United States in 1863, and in 1879 began to manufacture bicycles under the trademark “Rambler”. Jeffery, who invented the clincher tire in 1881, began experimenting with motor vehicles as early as 1897, but it wasn’t until 1900 that he successfully produced one. In that year, he sold his bicycle business, and purchased a factory in which he began to manufacture G & J cars (later known as Rambler cars) in 1902. Jeffery remained president of Thomas B. Jeffery Company, later the Nash Motors Company, until his death.
