For Sale: 1927 Essex Super Six in Orange, California

Vehicle Description

Classic Car Marketing, Inc. Southern California’s premier marketing company is pleased to introduce this new listing offered for sale by one of our clients.

This 1927 Essex super six 2 door sedan is fully restored and is a wonderful example of the cars of yesteryear at their finest. First a little history: Amid widespread false rumors that Ford had bought or was acquiring control of Hudson, Essex released the Super Six, featuring a new, more modern-looking body that left behind the distinctive front-end styling that had characterized Essex cars since 1919. The only remaining styling cue was the horizontal radiator slats, continued in a new, rounded, plated shell. Bumper bars were now a standard fitting, and a "Speedabout" model, with a boat-tailed roadster body, was introduced. Mechanically the car was much the same as before, though engine improvements allowed the car to rev higher - to 4,000rpm, and larger main bearings were fitted. The multi-plate clutch was replaced by a single-plate unit, and Bendix mechanical four-wheel brakes were added as an optional extra.

Specifications: 58bhp 6-cylinder 160cid "L-head" engine. Wheelbase - 110½ inches.

This is a rare slice of Automobile Americana, fully restored, offered at just $22,500 OBO.
