This automobile was owned by the Day Family for 59 years. Commissioned by Mr. Day as a gift for his sister, it was designed by J. Frank deCausse and built by Healey & Co of New York City in 1916. The tapered rear end of this distinctive car gets its name from the streamlined shape of a World War I battleship. The price tag was $7,353, roughly equaling about $137,000 today. Mrs. Day-Boyce was shy about being chauffeur-driven around Wallace, Idaho, so the car accumulated a mere 2,400 miles during the family's ownership. After Mrs. Day's death, the car was stored in her silver mine until it was purchased in 1975 by The Harrah Collection in Reno, Nevada. It has been in a private collection since 1981.
