The engine in this car is a fully rebuilt Model D double-sleeve valve six cylinder Knight engine displacing 288.6 cubic inches and conservatively rated at 85 horsepower. It features a 7-main-bearing crankshaft, pressure lubrication, and the unique Knight sleeve-valves, providing overall endurance and reliability far beyond conventional engines of the vintage. In addition to increased efficiency and power, the Knight engines were also famous for their near-silent operation (hence the "silent Knight" nickname), and this car is no exception. The entire engine compartment is detailed to an exceptionally high standard and all equipment is fully functional.
