Roebling Planche Model

Recommended Posts

Traveling in Salamanca, Spain this weekend, and visited a local 'history of the Automobile' museum. Turns out it is endowed by a foundation started by the Planche family. Not much mention of Etienne the patriarch other than a short bio, but had this model in a display case.

Obviously based on the later Mercer.  The original 1909 Roebling-Planche, had no headlights, cowl-mounted searchlight, or monocle glass screen.
