The world's oldest running car is for sale. It get 1/2 a mile per gallon.
The car seats four people back-to-back. It has no steering wheel – just a tiller that looks like the handle of a shovel. There’s a water tank under the seats for fuel. The car gets about half a mile per gallon.
It ran in the first automobile race in 1887, clocking a top speed of 37 mph, according to the auction house. It didn’t win.
“For 1884, for any car to be this complete is amazing,” said Alain Squindo, the editor in chief of catalogs at RM Auctions, which will sell the car on the afternoon of Oct. 7 in Hershey, Penn.
