This 1909 Sears Model J Runabout is a rare and special example of automobile history.

The engine is a 10 horsepower, 2 cylinder opposed air-cooled motor built by the Reeves Company. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a friction transmission and double chain drive, with a top speed of around 25 mph. The tires are solid rubber. A pair of antique lanterns are included with the car but are not currently attached. This museum-quality vehicle has been stored in a heated garage by a private collector.
