Formerly Owned by the late Comedian, W.C. Fields
Purchased and built new for Legendary Comedian, W.C. Fields. This car was often seen at the street corner of Hollywood & Vine in Hollywood, Ca. This was the spot that W.C. Fields, Carlotta Monti and secretary, Magna Mitchell would hold court. To keep the threesome busy this car had an electric martini mixer installed, probably an automotive first! The car was often seen with him and Carlotta in the back seat with his secretary, Magda who doubled as a chauffeur. Upon W.C. Fields death in 1946, this car was willed to long time girlfriend, Carlotta Monte. Carlotta keep the car in her 1 car garage in West Los Angeles until 1984. Needing money to put her niece into college, Carlotta sold the car to the original Imperial Palace Auto Collection on August 8, 1984. The Imperial Palace performed a complete restoration to its original glory in 1985, less the martini mixer.
