It is a touring car, (open air) as long as you put your smoke out first... :o

Wonder of any went up in flames as a result of that awesome design?

Shared this with a co-worker, he found the answer.

"An interesting feature not usually found on passenger cars of that era, or any era, is the fuel filler pipe protruding from the dashboard into the passenger compartment. That is the pipe through which gasoline is poured into the 15-gallon tank. Gas is fed to the engine via a one-barrel Rayfield carburetor"

Nice Chet. One of these days when I get back after the car, I know I'll be digging up info from your threads. Thanks!


Nice stuff, it looks like you had a great day.  Thanks for the pictures !!  Really like the Case Roadster.  But !!

No idea. Had I noticed it I would have investigated. I was moving so fast, there is so much ground to cover out there you need a couple days to do it justice.

That speedster was the coolest! I noticed the AACA doesn't even have a Case section. (unless I missed it)

And it is a steam show, so I have to post a few of these.

And a recreation of the largest traction engine ever made, the Case 150 Road locomotive. 10+ Years and around 1.5 million dollars.

I got a real close look at some very rare cars this weekend. The Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion featured the National Case Expo. Case was (still is) a huge steam & gas tractor manufacturer in the late 1800's and early 1900's and one of the few tractor company's to survive all the buy outs and consolidations that ate up so many in the last century.

From the collectors page "The J.I. Case Threshing Machine Company purchased the Pierce Racine Automobile Company in August of 1910. From the start the Case Automobile was a high class car, and it is said, the best car one could buy for the price.  Do to declining sales and stiff competition from mass produced automobiles, the Case Company ceased production of automobiles in 1926/1927.  In total approximately 24,000 units were produced.  Today these cars are highly prized by collectors."

I read some where there are about 100 known to still exist. In the early hay days of autos, Henry Ford was cranking out more model T's in a week, than they produced in total. Due to the little screen I am working on, I'll make a new post for each car. See pictures below.

Read reply #38

Has my readings and results when I was trying to figure it out. Has pictures of the key assembly, from the looks of it and what I remember the key "ON" connects the conductors on the top allowing it spark.

Sounds good.   If you have a chance post some pictures from the car show.

The show went on, but the weather was not good. Scattered storms with plenty of rain off and on all day. Have to hand to those folks, they ran them. Lot of touring cars with little to no cover, soaking wet. High dollar rigs as well. Some worth more than a quarter million. (google model k Ford) Last guy to finish was riding a 1912 Indian motor cycle, finishing in a down pour. I observed him literately pouring water out of his boots, after he sat down under the canopy.  I didn't take pictures this time.

Ran into Frank, he was admiringly staring at Ford when I saw him.  :o Think he was a little sweet on it.

Good to see ya Frank!

If your a water guy, now is the time to be on it! Sounds like a fun boat.

My car has been back burner this year, been working on tractors and old gas engines. (hit miss) Did take the Ply on a beer a run the other night though. Weather pending, I'll bring it to the Nowthen show next weekend.

In MN, we are in full swing of summer shows. Tractor Pulls, threshing shows, hunting expos, grass drags (snowmobiles), festivals etc.. My favorite 4 weekends coming up. This Saturday is the New London - New Brighton Antique car run. The Plymouth's are way to modern for the run. :o Link at the bottom, they have a pretty good photo album. Some real head turning high buck stuff in there.

"Eligibility requirements:  All vehicles up through 1908 and any 1 or 2 cylinder vehicles up through 1915 are eligible to participate in Saturday run.  This includes bikes, motorcycles, steam and electric cars as well.  On Pre-tours only, any vehicle up though 1915."
