1918 Milburn Electric runabout. Dick's Classic Garage
This 1918 Milburn Electric Model 27 Brougham had a 76 volt DC motor, four forward speeds and two reverse, a top speed of 30 mph and a range of 100 miles, and sold for $1450 ($27,000 in today’s currency). The Milburn was popular with President Woodrow Wilson who drove his Milburn around the White House grounds. I did this photo at Dick’s Classic Garage just before the Milburn was shipped to RM Sotheby’s auction where it sold for $63,250. Everything old is new again. www.russmoorephotography.com.
