THE BREWSTER-KNIGHT

James Brewster established Brewster & Co. as a carriage manufacturer in New Haven, Connecticut in 1810. Beginning as a coachbuilder, Brewster would transition into manufacturing cars under its own name in 1915 with a factory in Long Island City, New York. Featuring quiet, reliable Knight-type sleeve-valve engines, the Brewster motorcars were the pinnacle of understated styling and class. 

Throughout a decade of production, the 125" wheelbase provided ample space for numerous open and closed, owner and chauffeur driven body styles. Starting at $5,250 and costing as much as $8,500, only 473 Brewster-Knights would be made before 1925 when the company stopped production of its own cars in anticipation of its acquisition by Rolls-Royce of America.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Model O2 features one of the most expensive body styles available on a Brewster, the regal Town Landaulet. Featuring a fully enclosed passenger compartment and open front chauffeur seat, the sheer quality of Brewster's work can be seen in the luxurious finishes and attention to detail that allow the rear passengers to enjoy open motoring on warm, sunny days. The subject of an older restoration, the car is beautifully finished in dark green with a black leather front seat and a rear cabin trimmed in fine broadcloth. The lucky rear occupants have a nicely proportioned throne from which to view the world, while two occasional seats are fitted for when a few friends are along for the ride.

Formerly the property of St. Louis, Missouri collector Robert Pass, the car was purchased from him by a Georgia-based enthusiast in 1984. The Brewster joined the Tupelo Automobile Museum from an auction in Auburn over Labor Day Weekend in 1991.

It is believed that only about 30 Brewster-Knight motorcars still survive today making this an exceeding rare change to acquire a singularly Brewster-made automobile!

 

This auto was seen at The Tupelo Auto Museum which is now closed.

The auction of all the museum contents will be held April 26-27 at the Tupelo Automobile Museum with the preview day April 25.
