To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 10 - 11 October 2019. Estimate:$20,000 - $25,000 High-quality Holsman high-wheelerArchetypal rope drive systemAACA National First in 1975 For 1908 Holsman continued the No. 9 and No. 10 Runabout and No. 11 Surrey, but dropped the No. 3 that was offered in 1907. Instead a No. 5 took its place. The wheelbase of all models had been increased to 75 inches.Harry Holsman was true to his craft. He refused to upgrade his vehicles to pneumatic tires or upgrade the simple brakes that acted directly on the steel tires. Despite the availability of the larger Surrey models and, in 1909 and 1910, enclosed coupes, Holsmans company failed in 1910. He did make another try, after moving some 50 miles away, with an another high-wheeler called the Independent Harvester. It was no more successful.This No. 5 Holsman Runabout has the early rope drive system and right-hand steering. Equipped with a Rushmore Searchlight, it has a carbide generator, a Dietz oil taillamp, black leather fenders, and a cape top. It was awarded an AACA National First in 1975.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf19.
