Description

By 1905, under-seat engines were becoming old fashioned in car design, so Cadillac modernised their look by mounting a dummy bonnet at the front. These were replaced for 1906 by Models K and M, which differed only in wheelbase (M was two inches longer). The K and M continued into 1907, where they were joined by Models S and T, the latter running through to the end of 1908.

The Cadillac Model K, one of their most successful offerings of the Edwardian era, had a 10 hp, 98.2 cu. in. horizontal single-cylinder engine, with two-speed planetary transmission, solid front axle with transverse leaf spring, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs and single chain drive, and dual differential-mounted brakes.

This delightful 1906, two seat ‘Runabout’ is handsomely presented in Forest Green with black leather seats, all of which are in lovely condition. The car carries an impressive array of brass lighting equipment always a pleasing feature of any good Veteran. It has plainly benefitted from considerable refurbishment in recent years, so that coachwork and upholstery are in excellent condition. This is a charming specimen of a small and useable Edwardian of quality and will fit well into any significant collection.
