Pioneer Auto receives three of world’s rarest, most valuable vehicles

RAPID CITY, S.D. – Three of the rarest and oldest vehicles in the world were recently delivered to the famous Pioneer Auto Show in Murdo, S.D.

Dave's Transport delivered the vehicles, which fulfilled a long-term negotiation of moving them from a northeast collection where they had been housed for 65 years.

“Now, we have the honor of displaying the vehicles at Pioneer Auto Show,” said Dave Geisler Sr., owner of the classic car museum. “These rare gems add more class to our entire collection.”

The antique car museum’s new vehicles include the 1904 Holsman Model K, the 1907 Middleby and the 1903 Ford Model A. Some facts about each of the vintage cars are as follows:

1904 Holsman Model K
Chicago, IL (1903 - 1910) 

“Many companies copied this model. It is the granddaddy of the high wheelers,” said Geisler. “Henry K. Holsman stuck with the high wheeler until they went out of favor.”

This vehicle features a unique 7/8 Manilla rope drive.

1907 Middleby
Reading, Pennsylvania

This vehicle was named for Charles M. Middleby, and the models of this car were built in the former Charles E. Duryea Plant. It is a two-cylinder vehicle with an air cooling system.

“This is possibly the last 1907 Middleby to exist in the world,” said Geisler. “We’re very fortunate to have it here at Pioneer Auto.”

Serial #433

“This is a collector’s dream,” exclaimed Geisler. “Henry Ford's fingerprints are all over this one. Henry then built several more models until he settled on the Model T in 1908. We have been looking for a 1903 Ford since we opened in 1954.”
