1913 Case Model N news, pictures, and information
CASE made its first attempt in outsourcing engine on this car. The car was fitted with a 4-cylinder 30-horsepower Continental engine (actually developed 38-42 horsepower) that was manufactured in Muskegon, Michigan. With a 4 and 1/8 bore and a 5 and 1/4 inch stroke, she boasts a modest 280.6 cubic inches. Other interesting features included helical cut timing gears, engine oil level sight gauge, engine oil sight feed gauge on footboard, cast aluminum crank case and transmission housing, a three-speed selective transmission, double-drop frame, six disk clutch, and an acetylene injection starting system.
What remained of this car was obtained in Orlando, Florida, in January 1998 and it has been under restoration for the past 7 years. Many sheet metal, brass, and wood parts had to be re-made/re-cast from existing original or from patters developed from the remaining cars.
