Sportif Phaeton
Designer: Derham
Locomobile found their way into the garages of America's elite, featuring some of the finest coachbuilt bodies of the era. In 1911, the firm introduced the Model 48 and called it 'The Exclusive Car for Exclusive People.' The slogan endured up until the company stopped producing automobiles in 1929.

This one-of-a-kind 1925 Locombile was custom built for Mr. Edward T. Stotesbury, who was J. P. Morgan's business partner. Mr. Stotesbury ordered this Model 48 Locomobile in the fall of 1924 with a special order fully transformable convertible sedan body by Derham. The top can be lowered and all the windows disappear to give the car the look of a Phaeton. Upon delivery, Mr. Stotesbury had the car shipped to New York where the car was restyled with new fenders, custom appointments, a Rolls-Royce style hood and radiator. The eagle radiator cap, made of solid silver, denotes the automobile's distinct American heritage. The engine glistens like jewelry, for it is composed of numerous metals, including silver, nickel, bronze, aluminum brass and copper. The automobile, in design and manufacture, is lavish and speaks to the wealth and sophistication of its era.

He felt that in his position as the managing director of the largest bank in America, it was not proper for him to be seen in a foreign automobile. The Locomobile was then shipped to his mansion, named 'Whitemarsh Hall', in Philadelphia, which was the most lavish American palace ever constructed. Henry Ford was quoted as saying, 'It is a great experience to see how the rich live,' after he visited the mansion. The car was Stotesbury's personal automobile.
