Maine and Florida


I have collected a fair number of parts, including steering spyders, carbs, fenders, axles and other stuff for both roadsters and touring cars.  Some of the stuff is located in Maine, some in Florida, but if you are actively trying to get your Saxon on the road, give me a call as I may just have what you need.

Saxon Parts, Literature


Elliott Fletcher has put much of the literature that we know about on a CD. This includes very important parts and operator's manuals, with Atwater-Kent manuals and all kinds of advertising. Though no longer available, Elliott is working on some other formats, so stay tuned.


Walter Prichard is a great source for finding parts, and he has reproduced some essential Saxon parts. Contact him through the Registry. 


What is a Saxon Worth?

Like all antiques, worth is dependent upon condition, rarity and provenance.  Saxons come up for sale so rarely, unlike Model T’s, that we can only set a range. In these comments, I am only considering cars that are complete and operable. You find a number of Saxons that are incomplete projects, and for good reason – parts are very hard to come by, and thus restoring a Saxon can be a difficult and expensive task.

Roadsters generally follow the prices of Model T’s.  Currently, good examples can be found in the $mid-teens, though a perfectly restored or completely original car, with an excellent history, might fetch $20-30,000. Cars built before 1916 get better prices because they can be shown and toured as brass era cars, eligible for HCCA-sponsored tours.

Saxon Sixes generally follow the prices for light Studebakers, Dodges and REOs.  As with the roadsters, incomplete projects can be purchased very reasonably. Good Sixes, (complete, running and cosmetically sound) can be purchased in the $high teens and 20’s. A good touring car, with an excellent history and excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition, can currently reach prices in the$upper 20’s and even low 30’s. Again, cars built before 1916 have a price advantage.

Some of the rarer Saxons, like the Six roadster, the Chummy and the later Duplexes are rare enough that it would be just an individual judgment as to value.

If you are buying a Saxon, try to get every scrap of history and information, used parts, and boxes of what the seller considers “junk” when you take delivery. The history adds value to your car, and old letters etc. can often tell an interesting tale about your Saxon.  Junk parts can often be salvaged; serve as templates; or solve a problem. Most Saxon owners throw almost nothing away.

Walter Pritchard on Saxon prices : In the September 2013 issue of Saxon Times, Walter lists these values for a roadster: 

$7500 for a car that "can be driven, with brakes tires, all the wood replaced and the windshield and doors and trunk lid."

$15,000 for a nicely painted touring car, with nice upholstery and a top, and able to cruise at 35 mph reliably

$20,000 for a car with great details, starter and very well appointed. I'd add the sidecurtains are a plus, though rarely used.
