Currently on ebay is a rather nice looking 1912 depot hack, ebay item no 190763815825. I wonder how one gets into the back seats?
There are some unusual raised sections on the left side of the block, neatly done, but I wonder they are there. Is this something that might be done to repair some freeze cracks in the block? I have never seen anything like this before, as we never had freeze crack problems in Australia.
Allan from down under.
Interesting connection for his whistle as well. The whistle is way up in front and it looks like stepping on the pedal blocks the exhaust at the muffler. So the exhaust always exits partly through the whistle and partly thru the muffler. Step on the pedal and nothing goes out the muffler.
You are correct Allan. Do they remove the seats from the back to load the passengers, and then install the seats once the passengers are in the hack?
NIce looking hack. To me, it looks like with the help of a gentleman, the passengers step on the rear step-plate and then up on the rear fender to get into the back seats.
My original 1919 hack has rear doors and a flip up middle seat to allow passenger access to the rear.
Additionally the two rear seats come out so it can easily carry suitcases, grocery bags or cases of shine.
Bidding will begin at $43,000 on the Sunday following a the third full moon in August after a snow storm in Florida and I'll accept $100 over the highest bid I receive!
Blind bidding is not allowed so the three mice can stay away.
Why would you suppose there is no photo of the right side of the block and the carburetor?
Looks like an NH carb. from the angle provided.
That is in Jack Daron's neck of the woods.
I bet the seats were an afterthought and it started out just being a huckster. That Front seat doesn't look all the fun to sit on ether.
