Historically famous as being built for Henry Ford, Evangeline may be the worlds most attractive runabout ever. Named after a close friend of many years, Evangeline Cote Dahlinger. Evangeline was powered by a Liberty V-12 producing some 450Hp and 1250 lbs/ft of torque. Unfortunately we are not able to provide any images of Evangeline as the current owner of the vessel has not granted us permission…

Restoration was carried out by Robinson Restoration in California and Evangeline took away honors at the  2015 Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance.
