1911 Lozier Model 51

Another car sold by RM Auctions at the 2013 Amelia Island sale was this 1911 Lozier. Previously owned by Ken Pearson, the car was lovingly restored many years ago and meticulously maintained by Mr. Pearson over many years of extensive use. We were fortunate to have toured with the Pearsons back in 1989 (we drove a 1910 Buick model 16) and the car looked every bit as good almost 25 years later - amazing.

Clearly, the bidders knew of Mr. Pearson's preparation and maintenance of the car as the bidding was spirited - the car sold for almost twice the estimate, with a final price of $1,000,000 (before the buyers premium). I hope the new owners get out and tour with it.

  1. Steve--thanks for posting the brass from Amelia. Some truly spectacular cars. Those of us who still have snow are envious. The Lozier's conservative colour scheme is so classy, and the Austin's size is so overwhelming. I think Jim Grundy's Pierce would be my choice for tourability and style, but they are all centre-piece cars.
