Ruxton History

1929 Ruxton Model C

Chassis number : 1003

Share on:

The Ruxton was the brainchild of William Muller, who convinced his employer, Edward G. Budd Manufacturing Company of Philadelphia, to invest in the front-wheel-drive prototype. Although the effort began at Budd, the project was quickly moved to the Board Machine Company, and New Era Motors was soon established as its parent company.

Three prototypes were constructed bearing chassis numbers 1000, 1001, and 1002. In the fall of 1929 this car (chassis number 1003) would mark the official debut of the Ruxton, showing a glimpse of the final Amos-Northup-designed roadster body. The factory retained this car press, shows and demonstrations. After Ruxton's demise the car was tucked away. Ruxton aficionado Leroy 'Doc' Forsythe later purchased the car from a New Jersey used car lot in 1952. By 1984 the Imperial Palace Collection in Las Vegas had restored the car, and then subsequently sold it to collector John O'Quinn. Its current owner acquired the car in 2010 and has since corrected many items on the vehicle while retaining its unique early production features.
