eb 112014 - Helin - ca. 1926-29 Locomobile Series 90 Victoria Sedan

 

San Francisco circa 1930s. “Locomobile 90 Victoria Sedan.” With a factory price of $7300, this giant Series 90 Victoria came at the end of the road for the revered Locomobile brand, whose last cars rolled off the assembly line in 1929. Photo courtesy of Shorpy

I think having a factory price of $7300 in 1929 was probably a bad marketing strategy. You could get a Cadillac for that in 1976.
