Sold for $2,750 at 2007 Vintage Motor Cars at Hershey.
The Whippet marque was introduced in July of 1926 as a 1927 model and was Overland's successor. In comparison to the equivalent four-cylinder Overland, the Whippet was 200 pounds lighter and rested on a wheelbase that was a quarter inch longer. The engine was more advanced, smaller, and produced the same amount of power. It featured advantages such as full-pressure oiling and pump-circulated cooling. It was a very durable and sturdy engine that would eventually be used in the Jeep vehicles more than a decade later.

The Whippet vehicles quickly became a very successful, popular and high selling vehicle. In 1928 a six-cylinder engine was added to the line up increase the vehicles versatility and catering to a wider demographic of buyers. In 1928 they were the third-best-selling marque and lost out to Essex by a small margin in 1929.

This 1927 Whippet Model 96 Coupe was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars sale at Hershey, PA presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $4,000 - $8,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for a high bid of $2,750.

It is powered by a four-cylinder L-head engine that displaces 134.2 cubic-inches and produces 30 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual transmission and four-wheel mechanical drum brakes. The 100-inch wheelbase is held in place by sold front axle and live rear axle, both with semi-elliptic leaf springs.

This car is in pretty poor condition, and shows many signs of a long life. There are dents, dings, scratches, and rust. The body and chassis are generally straight; the black paint has dulled over the years and peeled in many places. The glass is intact and good. The interior fabric shows considerable wear and tares. Many of the window cranks are broken; the others are just missing. The exterior nickel trim is tarnished and thin.

A very curious and peculiar feature of this car is the overland badge rather than a Whippet emblem. The odometer indicates 38,992 miles and it was last inspected in 1949 in Pennsylvania.
