1910 MAXWELL ROADSTER
This beautiful red car for 2 persons was very popular in its era and became one of the base cars in the formation of huge Chrysler Corporation in 1925. It has no windshield and 2 cylinder, 14 horse power engine. The automobile produced by the Maxwell-Briscoe Company of Tarrytown, New York cost only $850. It is perhaps most famous as the vehicle driven by comedian Jack Benny on his radio and television programs.
