|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
This car left the factory painted Trinidad Gray, color code 60, but is now painted in red-copper metallic with a tan leather interior. It has a beige canvas top that is showing some ware and beginning to fade. In the rear is a large trunk lined in black carpet. The odometer shows just 12,498 miles since new.
In 2008 it was brought to the Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it was estimated to sell for $75,000 - $100,000. This car has bodystyle 39-7567 and is number 11 of just 27 produced in 1939. It is a very rare car with a history that includes a famous owner. The restoration has help up rather well over the years and it is very presentable in modern times. The large trunk space makes this a suitable candidate for long touring expeditions and the convertible top makes it an all-weather vehicle.
There was no reserve placed on this vehicle meaning the high bidder would become the new owner. At auction, the lot did find an interested buyer, and one who was willing to part with $73,700 including buyer's premium to own this car. The lot was sold.
