The James Cunningham Company, based in Rochester, New York, made the transition from building carriages to automobiles in 1907. The cars were hand-built and production was slow, with less than 750 cars being sold annually, but they soon gained a reputation for building high quality, luxurious automobiles.

This Series V-7, produced between 1927 and 1929, has a Cunningham-built, cast-iron V8 with four aluminum heads delivering 106 horsepower. Series V-7s were available in a wide range of body styles, and Cunningham clientele included Fatty Arbuckle, Cecil B. DeMille, Douglas Fairbanks, William Randolph Hearst and Mary Pickford. Cunningham stopped building complete automobiles in 1931 but continued to make bodies for other car manufacturers until 1936.

Club Sedan
Chassis #: V5141
Engine #: V5217
Sold for $80,000 at 2019 Bonhams : Quail Lodge Auction.
This Cunningham Series V-7 Sedan is powered by a 442 cubic-inch L-head V8 engine breathing through a Stromberg carburetor and backed by a four-speed transmission. The current caretaker acquired the car in the mid-1980s from one of the dispersal auctions of the Harrah Collection. Recently it has been given an exhaustive restoration that cost in excess of $250,000. It is currently finished in dark blue and black paintwork with a tonal grey blue interior.

In 2016 it was shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in the American Classics Closed Class.
