This example is a Model 41 Club Runabout that was delivered new to Mr. Harris of Philadelphia's wealthy Main Line region. It was bequeathed by him to the Franklin Institute of Philadelphia, a science museum and educational institution, in 1920. It was later transferred to one of their trustees, Mr. Spiegel, associated with the Spiegel Catalog of Chicago. It was later purchased by Joseph B. Van Sciver, Jr., a founder of the Antique Automobile Club of American and a prominent collector of his era.
By the 1970s, the car was in the care of Mills Lane of Atlanta, a banker and prominent collector.
From 1915 to 1919, Brewster built 242 examples of the Model 41. This example is one of three or four Club Runabouts known to exist. It wears an older restoration that is painted in red and black and fitted with correct lamps and Brewster & Co. hubcaps. The interior has deep red leather upholstery and original carpets on the floor.
In 2009, it was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey sale presented by RM Auctions where it was estimated to sell for $40,000 - $60,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the lot had been sold for the sum of $37,400, including buyer's premium.
