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 air!
