Selling at No Reserve is a 1911 Overland Model 51 4dr Touring Car (Bonded Titled VIN T513362). This car was one of the very first cars of Mr. Quam’s journey into the world of antique auto collecting. There are no records in the files about this car, other than the documentation for the restoration work that has been done to it. The story goes that Mr. Quam bought this car from an Iowa State University Fraternity House. The car had been used for many years to power parade floats for the VEISHEA Parades. The reason the Fraternity was selling the car was that it had become difficult, if not impossible, to find tires for the car. This car, along with a 1912 Model T Ford and a 1904 Holsman, were kept in the family garage at their home while their newer cars sat outside. While there is no exact date that he purchased this car, conversations with the family place the date at sometime around 1953. The car languished for over 35 years until it was consigned to a restoration shop in the late 1980’s. Much work has been done to the car; all of the body and paintwork is done. The frame is painted a Yellow Cream, the body Red and the fenders are Black. It has been reupholstered in Black vinyl instead of leather, but is in the original pattern. All the brass for the car is there. The engine has been out of the car, but will be set back in the car before the auction. THE MOTOR IS IN THE CAR AND TURNS OVER, BUT NOT RUNNING YET. Its condition is unknown. All of the mechanical parts that belong on the engine appear to be with the car. Basically, to put this car back on the road, it will need to have new wheels and rims along with tires. The engine will need to be rebuilt or thoroughly checked out. This vintage of Overland cars, were known to be good reliable automobiles for touring. This is a project that would better be described as half full, rather than half empty. Many thousands of dollars have been spent getting this project to this point. If you want to get into an early brass car that is HCCA eligible, this is the car for you. According to the appraiser for this Car Collection, this car would be rated as a Condition 3-4 on the Standard Grading Scale for collector cars, due to the excellent quality of the body and paint, yet the need for correct wheels and engine work. This is part of the Grant J Quam Collection Auction in Boone, IA on September 26, 2015. The car is being offered at NO Reserve and would be a great addition to any Collection.
