The company produced the Source Delivery Wagon, equipped with a double opposed engine, with 5x5 inch cylinders, located under the hood. Sliding Gear Transmission in unit with engine, two speeds forward and reverse.

As their ad stated... "Practically all working parts of the machine are directly under the hood, or the floor boards under the operator's feet, which is the only form of construction suitable for delivery wagons, as it would not be practicable to remove the load in order to make repairs, if necessary.

Dealers throughout the country thus far have failed to fully appreciate the desirability of building up the commercial end of the motor car business. The day is not far distant when it will be more satisfactory and profitable than the pleasure vehicle, and the agent who takes hold of this branch of the business early will get his experience in time to reap the reward of a big boom later, besides adding a fair amount to his profits at present.

The Soules Delivery Wagon is the only car today of a moderate price, which is built for the purpose for which it is intended. It is not a pleasure vehicle chassis with a delivery wagon body, but is built for one purpose— that of carrying a paying load of at least 1,500 to 2,000 pounds."
