She's a beauty,

the car that is, and is presently represented by one surviving example per KisselKar Klub. It’s a 1921 Kissel Model 6-45 Sport Tourster. Kissels were produced in Hartford, Wisconsin and were known for their high quality. The factory building is still with us, having housed the Chrysler outboard motor operation and the Bayliner boat company, among other enterprises. Could that be the understudy’s scarf hanging out the door?
