1958 Glidden Tour - Locomobile

Joseph Ott's 1908 Locomobile Toy Tonneau

This 1908 Locomobile Type I Toy Tonneau (Chassis #1884) was owned at the time by Joseph Ott (seen with the car). He had recently purchased the Locomobile from James Melton who is said to have acquired the car from the Sessions estate in 1939. The story goes that this car and the 1906 Locomobile factory racer (Old 16) ended up with Mr. Sessions due to the fact that he was an engineer at the company. At the time of the tour, this car was said to be Brewster green with red interior. This car was sold at auction back in 1994, achieving a price of $189,500. A Fantastic car.
