The Old Motor: George Stant Machine Works – Home of the Stant Radiator Cap

George Stant Machine Works – Home of the Stant Radiator Cap

George Stant of Connersville, Indiana began, his business by repairing bicycles in 1898, followed by the founding of The George Stant Machine Works. Early activities included blacksmithing, a brass foundry, developing and making machinery to produce piano tuning pins. Stant invented and patented an axle setter in 1904 for straightening rear axle shafts and a transmission for the rolls on a player piano in 1916.

Later in the twenties, the Company began manufacturing aftermarket automotive parts including a radiator cap to help prevent the theft of Motometers. Stant soon began producing the accessory “Quail” radiator cap for the Model “A” Ford and radiator mascot caps for other Automakers. In the early-1930s George’s son Kyle Stant invented and patented a locking gas cap, and at that time the Company was also manufacturing and supplying a number of different parts for automobile manufacturers.
