The Durant Motors Model B-22 could go 60 m.p.h., not a bad speed for its time. According to one Durant aficionado, its "unusual chassis design of tubular backbone construction supported a 6-cylinder overhead-valve 'vibrationless' engine that developed 67 horsepower at 3,200 RPM." Though far more expensive than Durant's Star model, these cars sold well.
