Lot 230
1942 Indian Four with Sidecar


Selling on Saturday

CHASSIS NO: 442159

Sidecar VIN No: 31147-SC

Indian and Four are almost synonymous. Indian began their production in the late '20s after buying up the Ace Fours. The 1938-1942 models are considered the best of the lot as they had a better crank/bearing set up. In 1940, Indian started their skirted fender livery and, in 1941, they went to a fully sprung suspension front and rear. Soon after the outset of WWII on December 7, 1941, Indian switched to war-time production. One of the rarest Indian Fours is the 1942, with only about 700 built. This example may be one of the very last Indian Fours ever produced. It is fitted with an Indian sidecar with Art Deco fenders. The sheet metal appears to be repainted. It is fitted with leather bags and an Indian rack. The headlight and wheels are chrome plated which was an Indian option before WWII.
