    Standard Silhouette CHASE - HIGHWHEELER DELIVERY VAN -1908

There are not many old delivery vans or lorries of this kind which still exist in such good and authentic condition. After all, they were workhorses that led a relatively hard life. This Chase Highweeler Delivery Van was discovered in a deserted barn in Indiana, buried amongst tractors and other farm equipment. It is an example of a make that only existed for a few years as a motorcar manufacturer, from 1907 to 1912.

Chase was established in Syracuse in New York State and specialised in commercial vehicles, based on the popular American ‘highwheeler’ of the time. The Chase Highweeler Delivery Van, with their high wheels were specially designed to cope with the rough prairie roads in the US. This 1908 Chase with its twin-cylinder 2.6-litre, air-cooled engine, was a typical example.
