As anybody who visited the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance last year will recognize, this 1928 Graham-Paige limousine is no typical product of a visionary’s one-off fantasies. Instead, it’s one of the 15 or 16 trackless trains (also called “sound trains”) that Hoosier Harry McGee built for various companies to promote their wares. From the seller’s description:
Based on the Graham-Paige Model 837 long wheelbase limousine, the Sound Train hood is modified to resemble the boiler of a railroad locomotive and fitted with all manner of locomotive-themed lights, bells, whistles and accessories. The passengers’ compartment is trimmed like a luxurious parlor car and modified with an observation platform at the back, complete with overhanging roof, elaborate railing and upholstered bench seat. Each front fender has a small seat where a child or glamorous lady could ride, and an effective sound system can play appropriate music or public announcements. This example is largely original and unrestored and has many of its railroad-themed accessories, lights and features. It runs and drives, but is aged, tired and in need of restoration.
