Share on:

This 1911 Model 50 American 'Underslung' Traveler Special 5 Passenger Victoria was ordered by Larz Anderson, U.S. Minister to Belgium, and delivered directly to the U.S. Embassy in Brussels. The $5,000 'Special' series carried a more powerful 60 horsepower 4-cylinder engine displacing 571 cubic inches. Minister Anderson had a custom windshield crafted by Vanden Plas of Paris and also added electric cowl lights while serving in Europe. His wife, Isabel, at one time was the wealthiest woman in America. She authored children's books, travelogues and poetry. Monograms on the rear doors depict 'Captain Ginger' who is the principle character of the children's series. Restored in the 1940s, this car belonged to Briggs Cunningham and Miles Collier before coming to the Seal Cove Auto Museum.
