The Kissel brother built automobiles in Hartford, Wisconsin from 1906 through 1930. They are highly regarded, strong, powerful machines with an excellent reputation. This is the only known surviving 1914 Model 40 and one of only 22 pre-1916 Kissel Kars known to the Horseless Carriage Club. It was owned by one family since new and the 6,900 miles showing on its odometer are, accordingly, believed to be all the miles it has covered. It is powered by a four-cylinder engine rated at 32 horsepower. Other than a single old repaint it is all original, right down to the seat coverings, an amazing time capsule which has been sympathetically maintained and preserved by a two generations of a well-known American car loving family. It can -- and probably should -- be used as is where it will be a particularly popular and welcome participant on tours and in shows. Its history and condition make it a strong contender for Preservation class awards.
