1922 Dixie Flyer Firefly Speedster: Only Known Survivor of 7,469

When the automobile was in its infancy nearly every city and large town in America boasted at least one enterprise engaged in the manufacture of cars. Most of these companies and their vehicles are lost to history. The Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum is pleased to present a survivor from this era that has traveled half way around the world to return to its home. 

On temporary exhibition is a 1922 Dixie Flyer Firefly Speedster, which was manufactured in Louisville, Kentucky, exported to Australia, saved from the junkyard, restored and finally purchased by Kentucky Trailer, the company that originally built the car! The Speedster will be on display at the museum until the spring of 2011.
