Peugeot back at Seal Cove Auto Museum after ‘GRAND TOUR’

Mount Desert Island, Maine-- The Seal Cove Auto Museum’s prize exhibit, the 1913 Peugeot Type 150 wooden bodied ‘skiff’ is back at the Museum, following a winter in Europe doing the ‘Grand Tour’.

The Peugeot, owned by the Richard Cushing Paine Jr., Automobile Collection Charitable Trust and on permanent display at the Seal Cove, made the long voyage to Paris last February to be shown in the Grand Palais at Retromobile, France’s premiere car show.  Following Paris, the car went to the The Louwman Collection - Dutch National Motor Museum for display and then on to London for showing at Bonhams and the sea voyage back home.

Inspecting the car after her return, 30 Euro Cents in coins were found on the floor mat.  Perhaps she was seen as a wishing well by her many European admirers?  Although she can’t tell us about her adventures abroad, she can awe and inspire our visitors to the Museum.

The Seal Cove Auto Museum is now open for the season, daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For further information, contact Roberto Rodriguez, Executive Director, at 244-9242, or at director@sealcoveautomuseum.org.
