S293FP is a short wheelbase model that was ordered in the spring of 1928 by A.H. Chapin of Springfield, Massachusetts. It was delivered in late 1928, fitted with engine number 22937. Virtually every applicable mechanical component, including axles, engine crankcase, steering gear, gearbox, brake assemblies and other cast parts have the original number stamped into them. Chapin sent this chassis to Murphy's Pasadena studio, where it was completed to his wife's order. Features include a large art deco motif of her initials, stylized fish door handles, and a shift knob containing pictures of her sons. The combination of the chassis and custom coach work likely exceeded $30,000.
Upon completion, it was presented to Mrs. Chapin, near the family Christmas tree. This involved removing a wall in their home.
Log missing, the car was discovered in La Jolla, California in 2010, it has been cared for and preserved its entire life. It is shown now in the original shade of Chrome Yellow, suiting the flamboyant taste of Ms. Gloria Chapin, just as it did 80 years ago.Also photographed at :
