Sold for $209,000 at 2007 Vintage Motor Cars at Hershey.
This 1908 Locomobile Model 40 Type I Limousine was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars sale at Hershey, PA presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $275,000 - $350,000. Though it failed to meet the estimated value, the lot was sold for $209,000 including buyer's premium.

The elegant body rests on a wheelbase that measures 123-inches. There is a contracting brake on the countershaft and expanding on both rear wheels. A three-speed progressive gearbox sends the power from the engine to the rear wheels. The limousine coachwork is a staggering seven feet and six inches tall. Aluminum was used to create the fenders.

This car has its original black paint and factory-applied vertical pinstripes on the rear and side body panels. The pinstripes were factory options in 1908.

The beveled glass windows are original to the car. There is a dividing window, as well as door glass and rear windows which all can each be opened by leather straps. The leather upholstery is believed to be original, though the driver's seat cushions have been replaced since new. The dashboard features a brass Warner Auto Meter, a brass clock, a glass multiple tube oiler site gauge, an ignition switch, and manual oil pumps.

Other features of this car are its matching spares mounted on the right side running board, 12-inch Rushmore Searchlight headlamps, bail handle side and tail lamps, a brass speaking tube, original luggage rack, and a vintage leather trunk.

The Type I Locomobile Limousine carried a base price of $6,200 when new, making it one of the most expensive automobiles for sale in 1908.
