Little known fact: when Amelia Earhardt wasn’t in the sky in an airplane, she could often be found on the road in a Kissel. Ms. Earhardt once drove coast to coast in a car very similar to this 1925 Kissel Speedster. The design was done by William Kissel, and it was claimed that 98% of the parts in this car were Kissel bits—impressive in an era when the dozens of automakers scattered across the country routinely purchased engines and other major running gear. Perhaps a shortage of spare parts is one of the reasons that this is the only Speedster remaining.
