1908 Knight Daimler Sleeve Valve Engine Start Up
This very unique sleeve valve engine first built in 1908 was rebuilt extensively by Nimmo Machine in Costa Mesa. It was started for the first time in many years on July 16th, 2011 at Nimmo Machine. These guys were amazing that they could make this engine run again. The car it goes in was once owned by the King of England and will be shown at Pebble Beach in August of this year.

1914 SAXON Runabout Roadster Model 14 (For Sale By Owner)
Offered for sale is this very rare Saxon Model 14 (not a type A-IV) Runabout/Roadster. It has a 12.1 hp, 95.0 cu. in. L-head four-cylinder engine, solid front axle with quarter-elliptic leaf springs, three-speed rear transaxle with quarter-elliptic leaf springs, and two-wheel mechanical brakes. The wheelbase is 96". This early Saxon has been preserved in very presentable condition. The body, paint and top are all in very good condition, and the brightwork in the carbide / acetylene lamps is still correctly plated in nickel. The paint has some small scratches and some small chips as it has been used in parades and driven occasionally. The plastic window on the back of the convertible top has turned yellow and there are some signs of light wear on the top. The seat is upholstered in black vinyl, which is in very good condition and nicely complements the wooden dashboard and black carpeted floor. The engine is clean, well detailed and runs well, and the chassis, running gear and tires are also very good. Car is equipped with a manual / hand operated horn mounted on the driver's door. There are some cracks in some of the sheet metal on the car as is expected of a vehicle that is nearly 100 years old. More photos are available upon request. An attractive light car and a very presentable older restoration, this Saxon is ideal for the collector in search of rarity. The acetylene generator tank is still intact, and also an auxiliary Prest-O-Lite acetylene tank included, but not connected. Carburetor is a Carter UT updraft and was recently rebuilt. Ignition box on dash is Atwater Kent. Battery is brand new. A 6V electric starter has been added to the car. Also included are the small side flags that are not pictured as well as a working antique/period bottle jack, lug/cap wrench, priming funnel, fire extinguisher and some other accessories. Please note that the vehicle does not have an odometer or speedometer. Vehicle has clear title. This vehicle is from the collection of Johnny Dillon (of Dillon Markets that merged with Kroger), and has been garage kept for decades. The car is garaged in zipcode 85629 and I can help coordinate shipment and pick-up. As a background, Hugh Chalmers was the man behind the Saxon. Although his Chalmers car was selling well in the medium-price field, he saw an opening for a small, light car priced in Ford territory. He opened the Saxon Motor Company in Detroit in 1913 and introduced the Saxon at the cyclecar price of $395. Far from being a cyclecar, however, the Saxon boasted a 96-inch wheelbase, 12-hp water-cooled four-cylinder engine from Ferro (also Continental). The first model to roll off the production line was the pictured two-seat roadster which used a 4-cylinder engine built by Continental that was mated to a 2-speed gearbox (an optional 3-speed gearbox was also available). Headlights were also available as an option, and electric lighting was fitted as standard equipment in 1915. In 1914 a team of 4-cylinder Saxons was among the earliest cars to ever travel the Lincoln Highway, covering the coast-to-coast distance of more than 3,500 miles in under 30 days averaging 35 miles per gallon! To meet demand, a larger plant was obtained in 1915, the year Chalmers left the company. A six-cylinder car was added in 1916. During the peak production of 1915-1917, with 1916 being the strongest year, total production hit 27,800 cars. The popularity of the Saxon elevated the company to being the eighth largest automobile manufacturer in America at the time, in large part due to fact the $395 runabout could outpace the Model T Ford, especially on hills. Rapid expansion crippled the firm, and, although it soldiered on into 1922, Saxon never really saw profitability again. What is truly amazing is that of the 90,000 plus overall cars built, the Saxon Registry is only aware of approximately 140 surviving examples.
