Our Very Red Whiting Automobile
© Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum
The 1910 Whiting Model A roadster finally got a little exercise this week. We went over it from end to end in the shop first to make sure all was in order, then took it out for a spin around Wedgewood Resort.
As you can see from these photos, it is a stunning little car. In 1912 Whiting truly became a "little" car after William C. Durant revamped it and renamed it the Little. A year later Durant dropped the Little, combined its best features with a design by Louis Chevrolet, and introduced the Chevrolet Light Six.
These photos were taken on the beautiful grounds of Wedgewood Resort, home to the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, Bear Lodge and the Wedgewood Suites. If you are visiting Fairbanks, please consider supporting the museum by staying at one of our partner hotels.
