This car sold in 2011 for 10.34 million . George Whittell Jr. purchased this car new , was said to be his pet lion Billís favorite car to ride in .

The Brass Era is an American term for the early period of automotive manufacturing, named for the prominent brass fittings used during this time for such features as lights and radiators. It is generally considered to encompass 1896 through 1915, a time when cars were often referred to as horseless carriages.

4 speed 289. The dealer is asking $30 grand. IMO a little high. Maybe between $22K and $25K? Not sure I like the matte finish.
