1929 Minerva Type AM "Clear Vision" Convertible Sedan -- August 31, 2017

We visited the Blackhawk Museum in June, 2013 to drool over their collection of classic autos. Minerva was a Belgian manufacturer which used Charles Knight's sleeve-valve patents to build smooth, silent engines.  Coachbuilder the Walter Murphy Company devised the Clear Vision concept, claiming that the narrow pillars would not obstruct a driver's vision.  Murphy designed the body and roof to appear low.
