The Motorcar Offered

This high-wheel Sears could be a valuable parts car for the restoration of a similar vehicle, or could be the starting point for a restoration. It is built on the same 72-inch wheelbase used by all Sears high-wheel automobiles produced between late 1908 and the end of the series in 1912. An estimated 3,500 examples were built during that period.

Being a 1910 model, the Model G Runabout offered here would have been produced at the then-new Sears Motor Car Works factory located at Harrison and Loomis in Chicago.

The 1910 Sears is missing both its engine and transmission assemblies. The steel chassis frame is believed to be original, but does evidence repairs and weathering consistent with heavy use and the passage of time. The buggy-style wheels and hard rubber tires are in fair condition. The front and rear axles are complete and correct for the model and are also in fair overall condition. The vehicle retains its original chain-drive mechanism and suspension springs.

The wood body is a replacement and is not an accurate recreation. With the popularity of Sears automobiles, a replacement motor should not prove too be too much of a challenge for the restorer.
