This very unique Town Car was built by coachbuilder Kimball for its original owner, Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt. It is a testament to the quality of this car that it was owned by the wife of the famously wealthy Willie K. Vanderbilt, founder of the Vanderbilt Cup Races and an unmatched automobile enthusiast. This custom Town Car remains largely original, displaying the opulent interior that Kimball created for it in 1915. Its preservation is a tribute to the three careful and knowledgeable owners it has had in its 95-year existence.
