55hp 6 cylinder 4.7 litre Pikes Peak Motor In 1924 the Chandler Cleveland Motor Company of Ohio raced a standard touring car with its new Pikes Peak Motor, averaging over 86mph! This car has the same engine. This beautiful and imposing vintage American car features the powerful 55hp 6 cylinder Pikes Peak Motor, an engine developed by the Chandler Motor Company in 1923, where it was tested along the treacherous roads of Colorado's Pikes Peak. But months of testing at Pikes Peak's 14,000 feet proved that the Chandler Motor Car Company's new-for-'23 six-cylinder engine was a "matchless master of hills" This is a rare coach built body, complete with cigar tray in the rear and passengers foot rest. The interior is original, it has not been restored but it is very good condition. The drivers bench seat is the only area that will need a repair but is perfectly usable with the cover over. The bodywork is very solid but will require a small amount of woodwork on the A pillar and the paintwork is presentable, it has a few marks here and there but nothing major. The tires are good and the wooden wheels are too. It would make for a lovely wedding car if needed. The car comes with its original handbook and various other papers. It is fitted with an electric cooling fan, the car is standard 6volt. Once running and warmed up the car drives well, the steering is very nice and brakes effective. It was running and driving well, but lately I haven't been able to get it to start and as such I have reduced the price. The carburetor will require looking at. A model T was $290, this was over $2375. The previous owner has carried out much work, including.. Radiator Rebuilt dynamo Cleaned tank, replaced lines and added filters Rebuilt water pump New Coil New Plugs, leads and points New silencer Rebuilt Transmission I am reluctantly selling the Chandler due to new work commitments, the car is in original condition but bear in mind that it is 90 years old so do not expect perfection at this price, only small jobs will greatly improve what is an amazing vehicle, it is a good project car.
