Sold for $192,500 at 2012 Gooding and Company - Pebble Beach Auction.
John Hewitt of Tacoma, Washington purchased this Locomobile Model 48 Sportif in late 1923. Upon arriving in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Mr. Hewitt expressed his desire to drive the Sportif back to Washington. Unfortunately, Mr. Hewitt did not know how to drive. To help Mr. Hewitt in his task, the factory hired a chauffeur for Mr. Hewitt. The duo traveled west in the new car, continually getting lost. By the time Mr. Hewitt arrived in tacoma, he had learned to drive and prompted dropped his chauffeur off at the train station.

By the mid-1920s, Mr. Hewitt owned three Locomobiles, including a limousine and a second Sportif. Mr. Hewitt retained this Sportif for 10 years before selling it in 1933 to another Tacoma individual, Mr. Ralph A. Wetherby. It remained in use as the Wetherby family car until 1948 when it was garaged at their home. Around 1970, Mr. Wetherby passed away and the car was given to his grandson, although it remained in the family garage.

In the mid-2000s, the car came into the care of its next owner, Mr. Herstad. Upon leaving the garage, it left its 72-year ownership and 57-year resting place. The car was immediately brought back to running order.

In 2007, the car was shown at the Pebble Beach Cocnours d'Elegance and shown in the Preservation class. It was awarded Second in Class. Mr. Herstad retained the Locomobile for roughly six years before it passed to a Northwest collector.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the Pebble Beach auction presented by Gooding & Company. The car was estimated to sell for $175,000 - $225,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $192,500 inclusive of buyer's premium.
