Advertised as "America's Foremost Pleasure Car" the F.R.P. was also one of America's most expensive and most limited edition cars. With a top-speed of 80-plus M.P.H., this very rare car was designed by Finley R. Porter, creator of the T-head Mercer Raceabout.
This was seen at the Seal Cove Auto Museum in Maine.
