1911 Scott

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever heard of a Scott? I have just found one that runs and drives in a barn, in a small Michigan town. I just started rescarching the name and thought I would ask for help. The gentleman I bought it from said it may be a one of a kind. It is a 1911 model, right hand drive, single cylinder engine, wood spoke wheels, retractable roof. It is quiet a find. The same barn has a 2nd owner Model A, and a Model T, both running and drivable.

Hope someone can help with the Scott, thanks.

1911 seems awfully late to have a single cylinder engine. Even the few remaining highwheelers had twins by that time. You would likely get better answers by posting some pix. The engine doesn't happen to have a recoil starter and say "Briggs and Stratton on it? ;-)

There are several listings for Scott in the Standard Catalog, but nothing during that period. We are very interested in seeing what you have bought.

The Isetta (1953-1962) had a single-cylinder engine and Maxwell still sold their 2-cylinder in 1912. Why change something that works?
