Welcome to the Sears Motorbuggy Name Plate Page

So you want to see some information on Name Plates for Sears Automobiles? Well, you have found the right page.

This page on-going research information on the brass nameplate on the back of Sears Automobiles.

From what I can tell at this point, there were at least two and possibly three different name plates used on the Sears while in production. There have also been a couple of reproduction runs made of this plate. This page will attempt to determine which styles were used and hopefully over time, help to determine when they were used.

If you have a style of name plate that is not shown here, please take a picture and send it to me.

If you have an original name plate with a serial number outside the range I currently have listed, please let me know so we can narrow down the range these plates were used.

Some general notes on these plates:

  • The plates were attached on the back side of the piano-box body. They were not mounted in front from the factory.
  • The number on the plate should match the number stamped into the frame crossmember under the floorboards on the drivers side.
  • The plates were brass.
Thanks, and enjoy the data!!!

I am not really sure if this style name plate was ever used. I scanned this image from one of the Sears catalog images. I have never seen one, but you can help me out here. If your car has one of these style plates, please take a photo and send it to me along with the number and model letter on it unless it is obvious from the photo.

Earliest Serial Number: None Known. Does your car have this style plate? If so, Send me a photo, PLEASE!

This is a picture of one of the reproduction plates made by a fellow enthusiast. These are a nice reproduction. You can see some minor differences between this and the later style plate.
