The car factory Sears Motor Buggy was situated in Chicago in the United States. Between 1908 and 1911 the factory manufactured cheap cars for the famous Sears, Roebuck & Co. mail order company. The large wooden wheels made the model especially popular in rural areas. The cars were marketed using thick catalogues.
The Sears was powered by a 14 bhp, two-cylinder engine. In spite of the wooden wheels and solid rubber tyres, the car had a top speed of approximately 25 mph (40 kph). In total some 3,500 cars were sold.
