Item specifics

Condition:

Used

 
All of the sheet music we sell is always ALL ORIGINAL and never reproduced or photocopied!

Offered here is a vintage large format sheet music: "Velie, Take Me Out In A Velie Car", Dedicated to W. L. Velie with Velie Automobile Ensignias on the cover, words by Harold D. Bornstein and Morton H. Luge, music by Lawrence B. O'Connor,
published by Luce & Bornstein, Boston, 1911.  This is a rare one! This sheet is in very good to excellent condition with minor roughness on the bottom edge and light horizontal and vertical center stress lines - there is old white tape reinforcing the spine on the inside.

Lyrics:

First
Start for a ride in a Velie car, she sitting by your side,
Leaving the throng you are spinning along, for an auto ride;
They all stop to look at the gray machine passing other ones by,
Not a jolt in the roll, easy control, like in an airship high.

Take me out in a Velie car, Velie car, Velie car.
There is nothing to beat them, classy machines they are,
Let me ride in it near and far, not a jar, it's the star,
The V-E-L-I-E; Take me out in a Velie car.

Second
I am in love with the Velie car, Known as the gray machine,
Beaten by none, its so easy to run, It would please a queen
In quality nothing surpasses it, equal to every test,
And it leads in the race, setting the pace
That's why it's call'd the best.

Take me out in a Velie car, Velie car, Velie car.
There is nothing to beat them, classy machines they are,
Let me ride in it near and far, not a jar, it's the star,
The V-E-L-I-E; Take me out in a Velie car.

Willard Lamb Velie, John Deere's grandson, became a success in his own right manufacturing three vehicles that represented the changing times and technology of the early 20th century.Mr. Velie founded the Velie Carriage Company in Moline in 1901. True to the family agricultural tradition, the company manufactured farm wagons and buggies.Technology was changing, however, so in 1908 the company entered the horseless carriage business, introducing "Old Maude." Though several local companies made automobiles, Velie's was far and away the most successful local effort. More than 75,000 Velie automobiles were made between 1908 and 1928. http://www.qconline.com/progress99/1velie.shtml

To complete this transaction, eBay will ask you to provide a Detailed Seller Rating on our service to you.  Please consider leaving us FIVE STARS on our DSR's, because as of February 2008 eBay will punish sellers who have less than 5 stars on their feedback ratings.  eBay is telling buyers that 4 stars is a very good rating, but as of February, anything less than 4.9-5.0 will lower a sellers rank as far as the new search function.  eBay will also charge sellers with a rating of less than 4.8 at a higher rate.  Please help us keep our costs down, which is the only way we can offer such great prices to our valued customers. If you do not feel that you can give 5 stars in feedback, please let me know why you feel this way.

All payments are due In Our Hands within 7 days of purchase - NO exceptions unless we have approved it in advance!

Please note Buyers from outside of the United States are responsible for any and all duties, tariffs or other fees that YOUR country may impose.

Please be sure to check our store, Myers Collectibles, where we have thousands of items listed.

Each week we list Over 100 Antique & Collectibles for sale! Always some superb items, low opening bid and no reserve! You might want to keep us as a "favorite seller" and check back often on our offerings - you'll always find something special.

We do discount shipping costs for multiple purchases.

Shipping Procedures I pride myself on quick shipping.  I usually ship on Mondays, Wednesdays and on Fridays except on holidays. Once a package is in the Postal Service hands, I loose control over it. Generally for US shipments you can expect delivery within 3 or 4 business days (or 3-9 for media rate). For non-US shipments, once the package leaves the US, even the USPS looses control over it. I can not predict transit times for these packages. They quite often are held up in customs in the receiving country. Please be patient.

 Sign up for PayPal; the fast, easy, and secure way to pay online.

 I never use second chance offers as there are too many fraudulent people out there trying to copy successful sales. If you get an email with a second chance offer it is not from me and is therefore not genuine so send it to eBay for them to handle.
