1916-1918 Harroun

Recommended Posts

Well it only took me 30 years to find it, I bought it at the RM Auction.

i got it all cleaned up, went through it mechanically, new tires, and it’s back on the road. 

The lady in the second picture is the surviving member of the family that cared for it for 100 years.

The City of Wayne Historical Museum has been searching for a Haroun for years.  Or anything related.  Since this was the home of Ray Haroun.  I am also sure that the Hackett Museum in Jackson Michigan would love to have this displayed or shown at the Museum show.

Todd, l’m happy that a member of the Harroun family has been able to acquire this vehicle which was in my neighbor’s garage for over 30 years.  I’m glad I found this forum and posted the existence of this car which led to your acquisition.  It looks great with your cleanup.  Was it difficult to get running?

No it was pretty simple to get it running. I cleaned everything first then went through all the fluids, cleaned the tank, carb., points, plugs,....

Once I got the fuel system primed it fired right up on the original plugs and wires.

I thought there were two of these cars in the original post. Whatever happened to the second car?
