The Locomobile Company was founded in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1899 and produced steam powered cars during their early years of existence. By 1903, the company had produced their first gasoline fueled cars. In 1905, they began producing racecars and in 1906 built two 90 horsepower racecars which were entered in the prestigious Vanderbilt Cup races that year. While they were among the fastest cars to qualify, their potential victories were hampered by tire problems. The Vanderbilt Cup races were suspended in 1907, but in 1908 the races were once again held, and one of the two Locomobile racecars won the race. It was the first international race to be won by an American built automobile.

The company's first six-cylinder production car was introduced in 1911. It was called the Model 48 and was among the most expensive luxury cars built in America. The Model 48 soon became the flagship model for Locomobile and would be built from 1911 to 1926 using the same basic mechanical designs.

The current owners of this Locomobile Model 48 have driven it on several cross country tours and have covered tens of thousands of miles. At 95 years old, it remains a testament to the quality of cars that the Locomobile Company produced. The Locomobile Model 48 is the only pre-1918 vehicle considered a Full Classic by the prestigious Classic Car Club of America.
