A Premier Automobile Arrives
Our 1912 Premier Model 6-60 roadster arrived on Sunday, and what a beauty she is! In this photo you'll note that the headlights have been removed for shipping. When transporting these cars to Alaska, it's important that accessories such as lamps, mirrors, and the spare tire and horn be removed, bubble-wrapped and boxed. Otherwise, these might bounce off and be damaged. The boxes cannot be placed loose inside the car, as these could shift and damage the vehicle. Thanks to BATS Motorsports, the Premier arrived in good shape.
We recently acquired this Premier from the the Nethercutt Museum. It is one of the largest Brass Era roadsters ever built and quite possibly the last 6-cylinder Premier in existence. It has a 140" wheelbase and a 60-HP engine that displaces 501 cu. in. If you visit the museum, be sure to check out the unique and complex air starter under this Premier's hood.
Note that we have switched to our winter hours and are now open Sundays from noon-6 pm.
