    1908-1909 Sears Motor Buggy Model K # 1810.
  6. The Sears Model K is pretty much done and here is that long awaited photo of her. I recently acquired the original tail lamp and one of the original head lamps from my car. The fellow was at a show looking at and showing cars when he began questioning me about where I had found mine. After a short time he realized that at some point in 1958-59 he had struck a deal to buy this car and the owner gave him the head lights and the tail light, along with a photo of the car when it was new. That deal fell through when the family heard of the transaction and wouldn't let the car be sold. Within a couple of days I had a call and he had found them and wanted me to have them. I couldn't be more pleased. Now I will need to find one head lamp for the passenger side which matches. It is a C. T. Ham - Comet light. Also, the dates on the registry list are what the owners were told or think that their cars are. According to a list of the serial numbers by year provided through somewhere, Many of the cars are listed as '08 or '09 and they are probably later years. If I knew where that list was created or with what data, we would be able to be certain about all our dates. Some have said the list came from AACA and others said it is from HCCA. I have no idea. This is what it says about the SEARS MOTOR BUGGY manufacture dates: <table x:str="" style="border-collapse: collapse; width: 537pt;" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="714"><col style="width: 50pt;" width="66"> <col style="width: 197pt;" width="262"> <col style="width: 290pt;" width="386"> <tbody><tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl24" style="height: 12.75pt; width: 50pt;" x:num="" width="66" height="17">1908</td> <td class="xl24" style="width: 197pt;" width="262">J, G</td> <td class="xl24" style="width: 290pt;" width="386">1,000 -- 1,300</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl24" style="height: 12.75pt;" x:num="" height="17">1909</td> <td class="xl24">J, G, H, K</td> <td class="xl24">1,301 -- 2,300</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl24" style="height: 12.75pt;" x:num="" height="17">1910</td> <td class="xl24">J, G, H, K, L, M, P</td> <td class="xl24">2,301 -- 3,200</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl24" style="height: 12.75pt;" x:num="" height="17">1911</td> <td class="xl24">J, G, H, K, M, P</td> <td class="xl24">3,201 -- 4,000</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl24" style="height: 12.75pt;" x:num="" height="17">1912</td> <td class="xl24">All</td> <td class="xl24">4,001 -- & up</td> </tr> </tbody></table>
  7. Anyone who has a SEARS or is interested in checking to see that their vehicle is in the SEARS registry, can email me at wasaw@tds.net I am the West coast connection that Steve had mentioned. I would like to get a message from Lennert so we can add that car to the list. My model K is getting better and when it is done and the weather allows a good picture, I will submit one. Sharpsaws
  8. I have been working with Steve's Dad on the Sears Registry project. It has been great fun and we have learned there are more of those little gems out there than we had imagined. Mine is nearly done being restored and I am eager to get her back on the road. This is number 1810 before and after. When completely done I will try to post pictures again.
