Owner's remarks: This car was completely restored in the mid 1980s and donated to the museum in 2000 by Yuasa Inc. of Reading, PA.The museum's collection of electric vehicles is maintained by the Boyertown Electric Vehicle Group, Guy L. Davis, Norristown, PA. The car was once owned by Bernard Berman of Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Research Notes 10/08/09: Galen Handy informed that the S/N for this car is 2-1046-7.  This car is listed in the 1957 Antique Automobile Registry as "1919, 8HP coupe, restored and owned by Charles Flammer, Jr."  It is not known yet which years Mr. Flammer owned the car or when Bernard Berman purchased the car.  The history before Flammer is also unknown.   This is one of the earliest Model 27L's and is likely the earliest remaining Model 27L (since 2-900-7 was the first) and hence must be a 1919 if there are any 1919's left.
