Baker Victoria
Chassis #: 1158
Sold for $93,500 at 2014 RM Auctions - Hershey.
The Baker Motor Vehicle Company was founded in 1899. At the birth of the automobile, power sources vied for universal acceptance, including steam, electric and gasoline. By the turn of the 21st century, nearly 38 percent of the market was comprised of electric-powered vehicles. Baker electrics had a range of 40-50 miles, making them ideal for suburban use.

One of the first purchasers of the Baker automobiles was Thomas Edison. A wide range of body styles on several standardized chassis and drivetrains were available, all of which were powered by Edison batteries.

This Baker Model V Victoria is a two-seater powered by a 48-volt motor and shaft drive to the rear axle. It wears an older restoration and is finished in black with a black patent leather fender and dashboard, and the seats are upholstered in black tufted leather. It is fitted with a black leather cape-style top.
