1911 Penn Model 30

1911 Penn Model 30 1911 Penn Model 30 1911 Penn Model 30 After 1900, the most popular vehicles no longer looked like horse-drawn carriages. Instead, the new front-engine vehicles were compared to train locomotives. The Penn 30 has many of the features common to touring cars of its time; a long sleek design, large chassis and the ability to seat many passengers. The touring car dominated the automobile industry from 1905 until the early 1920s.

The Penn 30 has local origins. It was built by the Penn Motor Car Company is a factory on Thomas Boulevard in Pittsburgh, a few blocks from the Frick Art & Historical Center. Advertising for the vehicle boasted that it was, 'the best at any price,' but this statement did not hold sway. The company only produced cars for two years, from 1910-1912.
