This 1934 'one off' custom Ford Brewster was built for Edsel Ford. It is completely original (66,000 plus actual miles) and is unrestored. It is the only Brewster built that did not use the normal Brewster front end. A 1934 Ford grill was installed at Edsel's request. The car was recently discovered after being in storage for the last 55 years. This is a historically significant original automobile; it runs and drives like a new car, and is one of only a few in existence that actually belonged to Edsel Ford.

This is the third Bewster Ford built but is the very first one shipped to a customer and was done at Edsel's request. It was the first one shipped to a customer and was done at Edsel's request. It was the first one seen, by the general public.

The car is on a stretched 127-inch wheelbase. The hood has no louvers. This is the only Bewster with a Brewster dash; the standard dash was Ford.

Sold for $198,000 at 2008 RM Auctions.
This 1934 Brester Ford Town Car is a very unique coachbuilt vehicle, constructed to Edsel Ford's own specifications. The coachwork was handled by Brewster and fitted on a Ford V8 chassis. The Brewster Company had a strong reputation with many prominent automakers, such as Rolls-Royce, who bodied many of the American-built Rolls-Royce cars that left the Springfield, Massachusetts plant.

The Brewster Ford were to intended to be a line of custom built Brewster cars built atop of a Ford chassis. The front of the Brewster Ford's features flying fenders, a split Art Deco bumper with a heart-shaped grille, and many other prominent features. The design was handled by John S. Inskip, the president of Brewster at the time.

Edsel's car was the third one built and featured slightly different styling than the others. It had a Model 40 grille and a hood that lacked louvers. There are 16-inch wheels and a 1938-type banjo steering wheel. The car was sent to Edsel in Michigan via railcar. On its journey, it was still being assembled. Edsel took delivery on June 1st of 1934 and was the first car to reach the public. In 1939, it was fitted with a Mercury L-Head V8 engine that displaced 239 cubic-inches and produced nearly 100 horsepower.

Another twelve Brewster Fords were ordered by Edsel, all with 1935 Model 48 Ford grilles. Only two were built before the Brewster & Co was sold at auction in August of 1937. It is uncertain how many Brewster Fords were built.

This car was brought to the 2008 Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it was one of the highlights of the event. It was sold for $198,000 including buyer's premium.

Town Car
Coachwork: Brewster
 
After opening its doors in 1905, Brewster & Company specialized in building formal coachwork for many different manufacturers. In 1925, the company was bought by Rolls-Royce of America and became the primary body builder for Rolls-Royce in the United States. When Rolls-Royce of America closed in 1934, Brewster, under the guiding hands of J.S. Inskip, purchased and bodied about 135 Ford V8 chassis. The heart-shaped grille was the trademark of the new Brewster automobile and four different body styles were built, including this formal Town Car with its open chauffeur compartment. Its third and current owner has maintained the car's originality, and it has won many Preservation awards.
