Heacock Happenings - Spring 2019
Monday April 15, 2019
1929 was the final year of production for the Stearns-Knight Company from Cleveland, Ohio. They built high-priced, high-quality automobiles starting in 1901, and featured the patented Knight sleeve-valve engines as early as 1911. In 1925, the firm was purchased by John North Willys to be the ultra-luxury component of his Willys-Overland empire, but like many, was derailed by the effects of the Great Depression.
This lovely five-passenger Coupe was donated to the ACD Museum by Richard and Holly Anderson, and features a 255 ci inline six-cylinder engine producing 70 HP. With a 234” wheelbase, the car weighs approximately 4,000 pounds and cost $2,645 when new. The Knight in shining armor hood ornament remains one of the most collectible and notable available today.
