1909 Sears Horseless Carriage in Horseless Carriages (Pre-1916) Posted July 20, 2006 My brother and I inherited a 1909 Sears Horseless carriage and are in turmoil if we want to restore or sell it. Is there anyone out there that has restored one? What were the challenges and costs involved? It is in poor condition. We have all the original paperwork, the plaque with serial number and almost all of the parts.
