This lovely Northern presented here is painted in a rich red and black color combination.

Attention to every detail has made this Northern not only a rolling piece of Americana, but also a very reliable and handsome horseless carriage, from its finely crafted black leather tufted seats to its gleaming brass and paintwork. The stylish Cape hood also has side curtains for inclement weather.

It was originally from the Merrell Jones Collection of Smoke Run, Pennsylvania, before being acquired by the Edwards Family Collection in 1991. At that time, it underwent a full mechanical and cosmetic restoration by Edwards Antique Automobiles. Although the engine was fully rebuilt in 1992 by Edwards, this is one of the ost authentic Northern automobiles in existence. The ar is fitted with all of its original components and the rubber mat is the original fitted in 1904 at the factory in Detroit. The only ´┐Żnew´┐Ż fittings are its black leather cape hood, upholstery and tires.

When completed in 1992 the Northern won an AACA Junior/Senior award and in 1996 this Northern was given the Grand Champion Award for pre-1916 automobiles at the Old Car Festival at Greenfield Village. It has been VCC dated as an authentic 1904 and has successfully competed in the famous annual London to Brighton Run in England.

One might expect some wear, or patina being an older restoration, but that is not the case. Continually maintained at the highest of standards, the quality of this ´┐ŻSilent Northern´┐Ż speaks for itself.
