19_Meisenhelder-6-55.jpg1919 -1924 Meisenhelder136 viewsRoy M. Meisenhelder's Sheet Metal, Auto and Body Works, based in York, PA, was in business from 1919 through 1924. They were primarily a coachbuilder and did body repairs. They produced four cars based on the Paige chassis. This is the only known example. A unique automobile featuring a roadster body, V-shaped custom radiator, unique built-in running lights, custom split windscreen, cast-alloy running boards with running board seats, three spare tires, rear mounted trunk and a host of unusual items that Roy cast himself. Those items included hubcaps, interior trim rims, lanterns and bumper brackets. Many of the original casting molds used still exist, and are displayed with the car. It was owned by a collector in York, PA, until the current owner purchased the car in 2008.

This one-off runabout is adorned with gadgets and refinements, including a stylish split windshield, side lamps over the turned-up running boards, and an air vent in the cowl. The polished disc wheels add to its unique period style. During the 1920s many individuals built their own automobiles but few of these cars remain in great condition.
