Engine number correct for a 1916 - fan belt is riding kinda funny. Looks like a nice little runner.
That is a sweet car. I'm guessing it got painted at some point in the very distant past. Note the red oxide under the fenders.
Man I would leave it as is and drive the wheels off of it!
I couldn't have that car in my garage. It has the wrong horn button!!!
Allan from down under.
Outstanding survivor! I'll take care of that horn button!
Did anybody notice it had a 4 dip pan and a one piece valve cover? But if it has the correct engine number for 16, then it must've been a dealer replaced engine somewhere around 1924 at least.
Mark, just bad camera angles and lots of dirt on the pan, all is 1916 non generator engine.
Sorry, meant Martin.
TWO THINGS ARE KILLING ME RIGHT NOW:
1. I told my wife that I was going to start looking for a "pre-1910" car. She's thought that was cool and was all into it. When I showed her this car, her first comment was; "yeah, but it's a 16, and you want a 19-0-something...?" Realizing I was instantly on the spot, I had no come-back for that comment. So I guess I better stay the course with the 19-0-something... (Otherwise, I'd be owning this little jewel!)
2. I'm leaving in about 3 hours for Wisconsin and will be within 1 hour of the car, which means I could slip by for an inspection before bidding...
And the fan belt positioned as it was (the dealer that is selling the car says they've now corrected it) is probably an indicator that the radiator may be clogged. They got more speed out of the fan by mounting the belt like it is.... although I don't know how it stayed on the lower pulley?
Notice the original floormat has the cutout for the 1915 bulb horn! Jim, let me know what you think!
Absolutely Beautiful to my eyes.
I would almost trade my Shiny '15 for it.
Thank you Henry.
Larry.. you are correct. It's just like mine. The other cutout is for a speedometer. Great car!
Well...?? Who won the auctuon?
