This 1931 six-cylinder Essex Super Six Sport Roadster with boat-tail by Murray can be considered very rare. Although the boat-shaped rear was en vogue in the 1920s and the 120-km/h top speed even surprised Henry Ford, the American car manufacturer Essex only made a few boat-tails. Only a handful is known to survive.
The Essex once formed part of the world-famous Bill Harrah collection in Reno, Nevada (US). After the collection was disbanded in 1984 the car was bought by an Oregon collector who restored it with respect for its authenticity. That is why the Essex now has such a beautiful patina. In 2018 the car came to The Netherlands, where it was registered, and is now on the button. It gives a lot of value for money for a pre-war car, thanks to its powerful six-cylinder engine, its rarity and its special bodywork. What you see is what you get, and in this particular case that is a compliment.
More information will follow soon.
