about this car

The Cabriolet Weinberger was the third car of the Royale series to be completed. Unlike the Kellner Coupe, the Cabriolet Weinberger was sold in 1932 to a german doctor by the name Josef Fuchs. Fuchs had specifically asked for an open cabriolet designed by coach builder Ludwig Weinberger who painted the car in black and yellow and delivered the car in May 1932.

Due to the beginning of World War II Fuchs moved first to Italy then Japan and finally New York in 1937, still with the car. In 1946 Charles Chayne that would later become VP of Corporate Engineering at General Motors, found the car in a scrap yard and purchased it for $400. Chayne did some modifications to the cabriolet that included a new intake manifold with four carburetors, new painting in oyster white with a dark green trom and a convertible roof.

After 10 years of owning the car, Chayne decided to donate the car to the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan where it can still be visited.
