The whippet was aptly named. When introduced in 1926, it was America's smallest car. It was also swift. At Indianapolis Speedway, a six-cylinder model established a new class stock car record; completing a 24-hour endurance run averaging 52.56 miles per hour. The car became a popular seller among vehicles priced under $1,000. The Wall Street crash and depression ended Whippet production.

Sedan

Sold for $23,100 at 2015 RM Sotheby's Hershey Auction.
The Whippet was produced by Willys-Overland and served as a budget automobile with a small footprint, offering a competitive price and performance to similar cars of the era. Sadly, the Whippet last just five years, and the company closed its door due to the Great Depression in 1931. During its five year production lifespan, they produced over 600,000 examples.

This Model 96 Sedan was added to the AACA Museum shortly after its opening in 2004. It was donated by a gentleman in Florida and was said to be an AACA Grand national First Prize winner. While in the museum's custody, the Whippet was used in the filming of an episode of HBO's hit series Boardwalk Empire, alongside a few of the other vehicles from the museum.
