Last issue we ran a photo of Frank Ferguson's 1892 3 HP Best gas engine. Built in San Leandro, Calif., by Daniel Best (who was probably better known for his enormous, three-wheeled steam traction engines), Frank's engine is the only 3 HP Best extant, and as such rates right up there on the rarity chart. That picture prompted GEM reader and California engine historian Jack Alexander to send in this catalog cut of a 3 HP Best gas engine he came across recently. Enjoy, and thanks, Jack.
