Russell Motor Cars: 1911
In 1911 Russell continued the Model R as well as the Russell-Knight "22" and "38" models.  New for the year was the mid-range Russell-Knight "26".  The Model "22" shared the same frame and body as the Model R, while the Model "26" utilized the 120" WB frame of the previous year's Model "22" cars.

Some changes for 1911:
     shift & brake levers moved inside on most models
     full height front doors
     Grey & Davis lights optional
     much smoother body lines along the sides
     one piece dash (no top piece attached for windshield mounting)

In April of 1911, the Russell Motor Car Company was incorporated as the parent company with CCM as a subsidiary. The slogan "
Made up to a standard, not down to a price" was adopted.   Knight engines continued to be imported from Daimler in England.
