RM Auctions Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey 2010 – Auction Report Page Five
Lot # 503 1916 Chevrolet Four-Ninety Touring; S/N H13776; Black/Black leatherette, Faded cloth top; Estimate $20,000 – $30,000; Unrestored original, 4+ condition; Hammered Sold at $15,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $16,500 — Mason engine with exposed valve gear, crossflow head, original tool box and tools, electric starter. All original, sound, complete and pretty wonderful. Peeling paint, cracked upholstery, fragile top, gunky engine and chassis. Believed to be just three owners from new, and looks like it. No Reserve. I think this remarkable, wonderful survivor is worth more than the amount paid for it. It will have to be preserved and used carefully but is an artifact of history that is unlikely ever to be seen again. Restoring it would be a crime. (picture unavailable).
