THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This four-cylinder Model 30 Touring, an elegant offering from 1912, represents the Brass Era Oakland that America came to know and love. It was formerly owned by the well-known and very active AACA member Marty Roth, and it has been lovingly prepared for reliable touring by talented, knowledgeable specialists. The transmission was rebuilt by Oakland expert, Bud Jonas of Belden, Michigan, with an overdrive installed by Lloyd Young of Winchester, Ohio. The brass radiator was rebuilt by the noted Dick Runion. The magneto has been upgraded for easier starts and better running, and while the original head and taillights have been converted to electric power, the original brass acetylene tank still remains. A locomotive-style exhaust whistle helps with any distracted modern drivers.

Mr. Roth and the previous owner both toured in this car, which is a veteran of many long-distance treks with the Horseless Carriage Club of America. It has also completed the famous Glidden Tour, which is regarded as one of the most strenuous tests that any early automobile can undertake. It is complete with front and rear tonneau covers, in addition to a correct top, side curtains, and light covers, which are all appropriate for a car that is expected to run in all kinds of conditions. The current owner installed an electric starter on the car, further improving its usability for long-distance driving, and also serviced the cylinder jugs with new pistons.
A recent demonstration of the car found it started easily and comfortably cruised the road on a good clip. The overdrive unit provided a nice benefit for higher speed cruising with engine noticeably less strained.

This Oakland is a handsome looking proven touring machine from a brand seldom seen today. It should provide a fun entry into the world of brass era touring.
