Re: The Baker

What a beautiful old car

Is that the batteries between the fenders, motor looks like its beneath the cab. A former member posted a lot of comments on the batteries these cars had, many batteries still work after 90 years.

Re: The Baker

I would imagine that the batteries cover a good portion of the floor. I saw a diagram of an old frame of a similar vintage electric car and it had a lot of batteries across most of the frame with motor right at the differential. This one looks like the motor is coupled with a drive shaft and located, like you say under the compartment.
