Rear End TransmissionRWD Founded in Detroit, MI in 1914, the Saxon
Motor Company produced and sold vehicles through the 1923 model
year before financial issues forced its demise. Initially the Saxon
was a lightweight, two-seater roadster powered by a four-cylinder
Continental engine, with a sedan and six-cylinder motors available
in later years. In the company's inaugural year, a Saxon car
traversed the distance between New York and San Francisco in a span
of 30 days which was quite a feat for the time! In only three years
total production of all Saxon models reached 28,000 units, making
the company the seventh largest car manufacturer in the United
States. This 1917 offered hereis an excellent example of an older
restoration that has spent years in humidity-controlled storage,
presenting well mechanically and in appearance with modest flaws.
Appointed in two-tone grey and green livery with matching green
interior, this model features a three-speed manual gearbox. Wood
spoke wheels matching the green body color are wrapped with
whitewall tires. The black top is functional and is in good
condition. This 1917 Saxon Model B5R Roadster would be a valued
asset to any collector's portfolio and a great vehicle to build a
collection around. FUN FACT: George Olsen, band leader for the
popular Jack Benny radio program, drove a Saxon and mentioned it on
1917 Saxon Model B5R
