1950 Mercury Custom
Mr. Allen Swift (Springfield, MA.) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Picadilly P1 Roadster from his father, brand new – as a graduation gift in 1928. He drove it up until his death last year…..at the age of 102 !!!
He was the oldest living owner of a car from new. Just thought you’d like to see it. He donated it to a Springfield museum after his death.
It has 170,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed, and is in perfect condition. (82 years)
Ferrari’s flagship during the 1950’s was the 410 Super America. Exclusivity was assured with less than 40 examples being produced between 1955 and 1959, no two alike. While hot rodders were busily modifying domestic vehicles in the United States, the Italians were passionately hammering out their own aluminium works of art. The Super Americas truly were custom cars, each having breathtakingly individual bodywork and performance to match.
