Chassis Num: 23187
|Sold for $90,750 at 2011 Gooding & Company.|
Case never produced high quantities of vehicles. Their highest production year was in 1915, when they produced 2,630 vehicles. Their final year of production saw a mere 187 units produced. Their primary business was agricultural machinery, so when they were forced to cease automobile production, they had a back-up business to consume their time and talents.
This vehicle is a Model 40 five-passenger touring car powered by a 334 cubic-inch four-cylinder T-head engine fitted with a Rayfield carburetor. There is a three-speed manual transmission with reverse, mechanical rear brakes, and a Timken full-floating rear axle. Since new, the car has been given a ground-up, nut-and-bolt restoration that concluded in February of 2008.
In 2011, this vehicle was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction in Scottsdale, Az. where it was estimated to sell for $125,000 - $175,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $90,750 including buyer's premium.
