55 HP, 224 cid, Continental "Red Seal" L-Head In-Line 6-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Engine No. 1347R27468 Created in Moline, Illinois, founder Will Velie had a bit of luck on his side when establishing an automotive concern, for his grandfather was "the" John Deere. Velie had already proven himself as a good businessman and manufacturer when he had established and operated a rural buggy company. Using a number of components from various suppliers, Velie cars were well respected and they earned a reputation of reliability and stamina. For 1920 the sales brochures proclaimed, "The First Authoritative Example of the Modern Style Tendency - a Harmony of Symmetrical Planes." This large touring car appears to have been given a cosmetic restoration going a number of years ago but as a complete car it could really benefit from a complete restoration. This touring car's sheet metal is straight with no signs of rust or corrosion and the body fits together quite well and the top is complete. While this Velie has not been on the road for a number of years it looks like it will be a rather quick process to bring it back to life. When you become the new owner of this Velie, you will have a very unique piece of automotive history.
