Description
 
The Waterless Knox with its pin-studded single cylinder air cooled engine avoided the cooling problems of early water-cooled engines, becoming known for their rugged reliability. Even early collectors recognized the importance of The Waterless Knox with the result that a surprising number of them have survived, including this 1902 Knox which had only two owners in the first seventy years of its existence, William Moore from new until 1929, then Tom Sellers until 1974. Its ownership history through 1989 is documented by a brass plaque and articles from the Kokomo Tribune and Indianapolis News from 1948 and another from the Kokomo Tribune documenting the sale of Tom Sellers collection. It has been dated by the Veteran Car Club in Britain as a 1902 model (with original certificate #1823 and letter of transmittal) and has participated in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run on several occasions. Powered by a 10 horsepower 157 cubic inch single with a 2-speed planetary transmission and single chain drive to the rear axle, the coachwork is the type known as a Stanhope with seating for the driver and passenger under a cape-style folding top and front bodywork that folds down to create the foot space for two front-mounted forward-facing seats. It has lefthand tiller steering, patent leather mudguards, stainless spoke wire wheels with body color rims mounting new white rubber 303 inch tires and a pair of brass kerosene sidelights. The maroon paint is freshly applied to thoroughly prepared bodywork with special attention to the intricately shaped wood body molding that defines the body contours. The mechanics have been well and carefully restored and consistently maintained so it runs and drives well. This is an ideal vehicle for Horseless Carriage Club events and be a desirable, proven, entrant in the Brighton Run. And it will never have to stop at a pond or creek to fill up with water. Please note that this car is titled as a 1901, but has been dated by the VCC as a 1902.
