Roger Schuller’s 1934 125 HP Buckeye is a beast of an oil engine that weighs 15 tons and is 17 feet long. Schuller, along with his father, father-in-law and brother-in-law rescued the Buckeye from the basement of a Grabill, Ind., grain elevator. A close look at the flywheels shows that the engine is in motion.
