Inside there is gold plated hardware, vanity cases, indirect lighting, and lambs' wool carpets. When new, this Brewster bodied Town Car was ,000 making it the most expensive car in the world built that year. It was over 50% more than the 'Twenty Grand' Duesenberg created that same year.

This is a very special automobile that has had only three owners since new. The first owner was C. Matthew Dick, an heir to a major business machine company. This car was created for his new bride who would be traveling between social events and required proper transpiration. Mrs. Dick kept the car at her estate in Newport, RI. The second owner was Gerald Rolph who retained the car for over 40 years. Much of that time was spent in storage in his Isle of Man estate off the coast of England. The present owner is a Colorado individual who purchased the car over a decade ago. It has been shown at numerous events and has earned several Best of Show and Elegance awards. It has been on display at the foremost museums.

In 2008, this vehicle was offered for sale at the 'sports & Classics of Monterey' presented by RM Auctions. It was sold for ,310,000 including buyer's premium.
