The Pope was available in many different models. The Model 67 Victoria Phaeton had a leather top and sold for $1,600. This example has an older restoration which still shows well in modern times. The black exterior paint is striped in red and yellow and there are black leather fenders. There are electric coach lamps at the front and a small tail lamp at the rear, all finished in black. The seat is upholstered in a floral print button fabric and there is a rear-facing occasional seat at the right side. Steering is performed via a tiller and power comes from a 60-volt DC motor. Braking is performed by two-wheel mechanical brakes.
The current owner purchased the vehicle from the James Cousens Cedar Crossing Collection in 2008.
In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Amelia Island sale presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $50,000 - $80,000. As bidding came to a close, the car was sold for the sum of $77,000 including buyer's premium.
