F C Deemer, of Brookville, PA, bought this car new. In a fairly
short time it became heavily damaged.
He kept the remains, and when Walter Seeley discovered all of Deemer's
cars in 1961,
he was able to use F C's replacement roadster,
complete and unaltered, for patterns to rebuild this car.
F C's sons Frank and Alex each received a
restored roadster. They were shown together when the project was
completed, at Hershey in

Automobile, 1969 Vol 33 No 2.
By the time of the 2004 auction, it looked much as it did when
originally restored. Image source RM
When I saw the car at the 2013
Auburn Heights Invitational, Seeley's restoration, by then an
artifact in itself, was showing age and patina.
By the time of the 2020 auction, a cosmetic refreshing, and black
tires, made this one of the most enticing brass cars in existence.
