Wayne Carini Auctions 1908 Simplex 50 Speedcar Roadster

This ad is marked as Sold

Description:

SOLD for $1,900,000

1908 Simplex 50 Speedcar
The Oldest Simplex Known to Exist

Lot S101

Monterey, CA The Daytime Auction

This Lot scheduled to be sold:
Saturday, August 18, 2012 @ 1:40PM

This remarkable 1908 Simplex 50 Speedcar from the early Brass Era is the oldest one known to exist. Chassis number 211, its central feature is the enormous 610 CI 4-cylinder T-head engine, which is rebuilt with new aluminum pistons, rings and bearings, and a new aluminum crankcase custom-cast at great expense. The finished engine is correct in every way, including its Simplex carburetor, centrifugal water pump, rare Bosch magneto and outside exhaust system. A 4-speed transmission with reverse delivers the Simplex’s ample torque to a double chain drive. A 40 gallon fuel tank and 13-gallon oil reservoir gave the Simplex long-distance capability and a special 5-inch radiator core insures more-than-adequate cooling. Fans of the Brass period will appreciate every detail in this charming and unique antique, which has been driven a mere 200 miles since its comprehensive restoration.
