This 1935 Brewster Town Car with its open driver's compartment and
formal passenger coach went through a 2 �-year restoration. The
interior was restored to the like-original specs with a leather
chauffeur's seat up-front and cloth in the rear. It was
professionally painted a cranberry/burgundy color with tuxedo black
fenders and pale yellow wheels. All of the chrome was either
redipped or polished out and mechanicals were either replaced or
restored at that time. The formal coach has fold-down opera seating
for extra passengers and a sliding window to speak with the driver.
The Ford flathead V8 was ordered special for it by J.S. Inskip, the
director of Brewster. Though this is an older restoration, it shows
very well. It runs and drives and is sure to be a valued addition
to any Ford collector.
A century after the founding of his company, James Brewster's
descendants realized that the day of the horse-drawn carriage was
ending, and the firm shifted to automobile body production. In 1926
the firm was absorbed into Rolls-Royce of America as the primary
coachbuilder for the Springfield Rolls. When the Depression struck
Rolls ceased Springfield production, and the company adapted by
offering bodies with a distinctive radiator shell and bumpers on
the Ford V-8 chassis. From 1934-1936, approximately 135
Brewster-Fords were built in four body styles with the majority
being Town Cars.
