|Metropolitan Town Brougham by Brunn|
Chassis Num: 2610047
|High bid of $70,000 at 2006 RM Auctions. (did not sell)|
This example has a eight-cylinder engine capable of producing 150 horsepower. It uses four-wheel Bendix vacuum power assisted hydraulic brakes to stop the vehicle and a three-speed overdrive transmission to send power to the rear wheels. It has a custom coachbuilt body by Brunn. It is finished in a two-tone color scheme with silver and black. The headlights are built into the fenders. It came equipped with side mounted enclosed spare tires.
This is a chauffer driven car. The owners rode in the back of the vehicle, and it afforded them much space to spread out their legs and relax. There was a divider window between the driver and its occupants which could be rolled down.
It is believed that Johnny Carson and Doc Severinson were chauffeured around St. Louis, Missouri in this car.
