Sportsman Torpedo Touring
Engine #: 5113
Sold for $291,000 at 2019 Bonhams : Amelia Island.
The Locomobile Model M, later renamed the Model 48 for its taxable horsepower rating, was introduced in 1911 and produced until the end of the company in 1929. During its very long production lifespan, very few engineering changes were made. Power was from a large T-head six-cylinder engine which was renowned for its lightness and durability.

This particular example is from the second series of production and is part of the Don C. Boulton collection. It has been given a restoration by Tim Ohlendorf of Ohlendorf Restorations in Beecher, Illinois, from a partially disassembled original car that had been owned by Wayne Leonard. Using a photograph of an original Model M roadster, built for a Philadelphia client, Art Bergstrom produced the two-seater body, using authentic period methods, on a correct rolling chassis and engine acquired in Wisconsin. It is finished in the color scheme of grey with black moldings and burgundy striping, soft dove grey chassis and suspension, burgundy wheels, and tufted burgundy leather upholstery. It has a Jones 100 mph speedometer and clock, and Locomobile -branded oil, temperature, amperage, and fuel gauges. There are correct Locomobile-branded Solar lamps, dual rear-mounted spares, a tool box on the running board, and a 'mother-in-law' seat. The engine is a 524 cubic-inch T-head inline 6-cylinder unit offering 48 horsepower and mated to a four-speed manual transmission. In the back are drum brakes.
