Legendary among classic American cars, the Ruxton was only produced for a brief time. The car was designed by William J. Muller, an engineer for the Budd Corporation, famous for the manufacturing of welded, pressed steel bodies for automobiles, railway cars and aircraft.
Records indicate that two hundred of the front wheel drive Ruxtons were produced
during the two year production period. This particular car was a show prototype, its multi-colored ‘mahogany’ paint scheme and other details dictated with great accuracy by Gretl Urban, daughter of and assistant to decorative art designer and architect Joseph Urban, who designed the paint scheme. Its beautiful interior fabric was designed and made in America. Some of the original fabric was found for the restoration of this vehicle.
