Type M Series 7 Tourer
Coachwork: Farnham-Nelson
Chassis #: 13058
Locomobile, built in Bridgeport, Connecticut, introduced the Model 48 in 1911, which endured as long as the company produced automobiles. It cost a whopping $4,800 at introduction increasing to $9,600 by the end of production. Locomobile was perhaps most famous for the sportif design, considered to be the first dual-cowl phaeton. Locomobile became a part of Billy Durant's empire in 1922, building its final car in 1929.

Automotive research found that J. Frank deCausse of Kellner Studios of Paris designed the world's first dual cowl/dual windshield. The first of this design was built under the direction at Farnham & Nelson Company of Brookline, MA in 1916 and placed on a 1916 Locomobile model 48 chassis.

The car is powered by a 550 cubic inch six-cylinder engine developing 82 horsepower. Finished in Pacific Coral with Deep Slate Blue Gray body and fenders, this Locomobile is powered by a 550 cubic-inches, 82 horsepower 6-cylinder engine and is one of three known to survive. It was designed by J. Frank deCausse and built at Farnham-Nelson Wagon Works of Brookline, Massachusetts. Records confirm this chassis was delivered May 12, 1917 to the Locomobile Dealer in Boston for transfer to Farnham and Nelson. This car is believed to have been built for the Leggett Family (of Rexall Drug Frame) and was delivered to their estate in Newport, Rhode Island. The exterior colors of the Locomobile match those used on Rexall Drug signs.
