Moline-Knight was an American brass era automobile manufactured by the Moline Automobile Company at 74 Keokuk Street, [Clymer, Floyd. "Treasury of Early American Automobiles, 1877-1925" (New York: Bonanza Books, 1950), p.107.] East Moline, Illinois, from 1904 to 1919. The car used a Knight engine.

In 1911, the Moline 35 was a two-seat roadster with a 4×6-inch (114×152-mm) gasoline engine and self starter, [Clymer, p.107.] still a rarity then. It came complete with folding top, windshield, and Prest-O-Lite acetylene tank (for the headlights), [Clymer, p.68 & 128.] all for US$1700. [Clymer, p.107.] By contrast, a Brush Runabout was US$485, [Clymer, p.104.] the Gale Model A roadster US$500. [Clymer, p.51.] the high-volume Oldsmobile Runabout US$650, [Clymer, p.32.] a Colt Runabout US$1500, [Clymer, p.63.] an Enger 40 US$2000, [Clymer, p.104.] and American's base model was US$4250. [Clymer, p.91.]

The 35 was joined in Moline's 1911 lineup by a four- and a five-passenger tourer and a four-passenger "toy tonneau", "all with self-starting", the ads bragged. [Clymer, p.107.]
