The Detroit Electric developed from the Anderson Carriage Company and became one of the best-known and most successful builders of electrically powered automobiles. Electrics were ideal for local use and were the essence of simplicity to drive and maintain. As one of the last electrics assembled by this pioneer company, this 1929 is refined and highly developed but still retains the quaint features -- tiller steering, front jump seat, bud vases, window shades and plush, comfortable upholstery -- which appealed to the ladies who were its best market. An older restoration to like new condition which has been carefully preserved, it is finished in Blue with black fenders and has an interior luxuriously trimmed in red velour and matching carpets. The black wood spoke wheels have wide whitewall tires which look great with the white pinstriping on the wheels. The opening windshield is flanked by curved corner glass panels. It is a good running and driving example that will appeal to collectors who appreciate the exceptional attributes of the early electrics, their practicality, silence, simplicity and stately elegance. At a gathering of modern electrics it will attract instant attention among the Priuses, Teslas and Insights.
