Touring Sedan
Coachwork: Hibbard and Darrin
Chassis #: 58236
Engine #: 58251
Sold for $252,000 at 2019 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach.
This Minerva is equipped with the six-liter, six-cylinder, Knight, double sleeve valve engine. Prized by luxury automakers for its silence, smoothness, and flexibility, it could push this 5,300 pound car to 70 mph. Minervas were very expensive when new, costing more than $20,000. Hibbard and Darrin bodied this model in aluminum, a very expensive metal at the time. This car is a past winner at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 1998 and has only had two owners since 1939.
