The Black Manufacturing Co. of Chicago produced high wheelers under the name of Chicago Motor Buggy from around 1906 until 1909. Offered as a transitional vehicle from the horse-drawn buggy, the high wheeler originated in response to the need for a motor vehicle with road clearance suitable for deeply rutted, out-of-town roads and a market that was somewhat leery of entering the automobile age. The Black features a 10 hp, 2-cylinder air-cooled gasoline engine, chain drive, wheel steering and double brakes. A true 108-year-old, Midwestern automobile, it is rare to find a car of this vintage and historical significance in this condition. Sold with a title.
