Formal Sedan
Coachwork: Fleetwood
Chassis #: 5320019
Build #: 2 of Five Formal Sedans
Sold for $82,500 at 2008 Automobiles of Amelia Island, RM Auctions.
There were just five Seven-Passenger Formal Sedans with the V16 engine produced in 1940, and only three are known to have survived the test of time. One is owned by musician Neil Young and this one was brought to the Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it was estimated to sell for $70,000-$90,000. It is a Series 40-90 fitted with the L-head V16 that displaces 431 cubic-inches and controlled by four-wheel hydraulic brakes.

The original owner of this car was Ruth Metcalf Roebling, widow of the president of John Roebling's Sons, best known for their work on the Brooklyn Bridge. Ownership passed to Holt Apgar Murray in 1962. It was inherited by her grandson in August of 2005 and sold at auction a short time later where it was acquired by the present owner. At auction, ownership changed again for the sum of $82,500 including buyer's premium.

The car has traveled 65,000 miles since new. It is a well-preserved car that has its original interior, division glass, auxiliary jump seats and padded leather top.
