Rolls-Royce Springfield P1 RegentThis is an American Rolls-Royce, one of 3,000 cars built in Springfield, MA, between 1920 and 1931. It was delivered in 1928 with a Lonsdale limousine body. In 1934, Brewster & Company of New York re-bodied it was a custom-built convertible coupe body called a 'Regent.' The headlights and bumpers were replaced at that time to make the car look more modern. Some of the special features of this car include stainless steel wheels supplied by the Wire Wheel Corporation of Buffalo, NY; running boards made of Honduras mahogany; and a small door to gain easier access to the rumble seat. The 468 cubic-inch overhead valve engine is capable of comfortably maintaining highway speeds of 60 mph.
