5 HP, Horizontally Opposed 2-Cylinder Engine, Rope Drive Chassis No. 1598 One of the most successful early brands of horseless carriage in the USA was Holsman, who offered a relatively powerful engine for the day and with its tall, high-wheel stance, appealed to those living in the country where horse-drawn buggies were able to ply through rough roads. This example features a very rare rear-entrance touring-car that could seat up to three people comfortably and appears to have been restored a number of years ago. Steering is done through a tiller and braking is reported to be adequate for a car that would probably have a 15 mph maximum speed. This design inspired a number of other pioneer carmakers of the day. It is a complete vehicle that has been a member of the museum for many years. We also believe that it would qualify for a London-to-Brighton run. This is a rare opportunity to own a very early 20th Century motoring vehicle. Please Note: Our research indicates that this vehicle may be a 1903 model year, however the title reads 1901.
