WE HAVE ALL ORIGINAL BOOKS THAT THE CAR CAME WITH. HERE IS A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT THE ESSEX VEHICLES. Essex cars were designed to be moderately priced cars which would be affordable to the average family. Proving durable. their capabilities were checked upon and confirmed by AAA and the United States Postal Service. In 1919 an Essex completed a 50-hour. 3. 37. 4 miles (4. 88. 2 km) endurance test in Cincinnati. Ohio. at an average speed of 60. 75 miles per hour. [2] The early Essex cars also captured many hill climb records. In a special Essex race car. Glen Shultz won the 1923 Pikes Peak Hill Climb. [3] It had a 108. 5-inch (2. 60 mm) wheelbase. [2] Initially Essex marketed a line of touring cars (open four-door cars with canvas tops). which was the most popular body style of cars in production at the time. While Essex added an enclosed sedan in 1920. it was the introduction of the 1922 closed coach. priced at $1. 95 (which in early 2015 would be between $15. 17 and $21. 15. depending on the inflation calculator used). $300 above that of the touring car. By 1925 the coach was priced below that of the touring car. While Henry Ford is credited with inventing the affordable car. it was Essex that made the enclosed car affordable. [4] In 1928. the big news was the use of four-wheel mechanical brakes. [2] Essex boasted "piano hinge doors" which were exceptionally strong. An advertisement shows a man fully supported by an open door to demonstrate the strength of the hinge. 1929 Specs Wheelbase = 110. 5 in (2. 07 mm) [5] Length = 14 ft 6 in (4. 20 mm) [6] Turning Radius = 23 ft (7. 0 m) [5] Road Clearance = 8. 75 in (222 mm) [5] Brakes = 14 in (356 mm) drums [5] By 1929. the Essex was third in U. S. sales. behind Ford and Chevrolet. [7] Essex sales remained strong into 1931 before sales began to trend downward. For 1932 a redesigned Essex debuted and was named the Essex-Terraplane. a play on the word aeroplane. For 1934 the Essex name was no more and the car carried on as the Terraplane. The instrument panel of the 1932 Hudson and Essex automobiles featured the first use of "warning lights" instead of gauges.
