1910 Simplex 50HP Toy Tonneau up for auction in Arizona

Date Posted: 08-01-2014

This 1910 Simplex 50HP Toy Tonneau is to go up for auction in the Arizona desert later this month.

The Toy Tonneau was the ultimate performance car of its time. With a massive four-cylinder engine of nearly 10,000cc and a robust dual-chain drive chassis, matched to four tall gears, the powerful Simplex was an instant success on the track with few rivals.

This particular example  ‘has a continuous, documented history and is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition’, and is estimated at between $1 million – 1.25 million (approximately £610,000 – 760,000).
