  • Description
  • Specifications
Brewster & Company is best known for its high quality coach building, beginning with horse drawn carriages in 1810 in New Haven, Connecticut and staying active for 130 years. When the automobile came about in the late 19th century and early 20th century, Brewster began fitting high quality cars with custom built bodies. Chassis such as Fiat, Rolls Royce, Delaunay-Belleville and many other prestigious motorcars were fitted with Brewster coachwork. Upon the arrival of World War I suppliers of new European chassis, parts and materials ceased to exist so Brewster began building his own cars beginning in 1917 until 1925. His own chassis design using a Knight sleeve valve 4 cylinder engine and custom Brewster coachwork. They were designed a bit smaller and marketed to navigate the busy roads of New York City. They were also very prestigious and expensive to own as they cost as much as "a Packard Twin Six limousine plus a fleet of five Model T Ford roadsters."  
 
Offered here is a fantastic original 1921 Brewster double enclosed drive with a great provenance, originally sold to Hugh D. Auchincloss Jr. (Stepfather of Jackie Kennedy) and delivered to his estate "Hammersmith Farm" in Newport, Rhode Island in 1921. His ownership is documented by a letter to his chauffeur from Brewster answering questions he had about the then new car that was found under the drivers seat when we first purchased the car. It stayed there for many years and in 1941 the car was sold from Hammersmith Farm to a car collector in East Hampton, Long Island. It stayed there until our purchase of the car back in 2009. We then sold the car to a client of ours here in Connecticut and he has since passed away so we now have the car again. It has been very well preserved and it runs and drives extremely well and smooth. Much of its original paint is still intact as well as its original upholstery. The body is also very attractive and has many of the famous Brewster details such as the iconic Brewster windshield and exposed slat headliner. This car was around $10,000 dollars when new in 1921 and is a very well built and high quality car, much of the trim being german silver and brass. It's a fantastic original car with a fantastic provenance. Contact us today for more information.
