Chassis: 90107
Originally delivered in grey with blue covered fenders, this Teardrop was repainted numerous times. Its first owner, princess Stella de Khapurthala, often matched the car's livery to her outfit. She won a prize in the Concours d'Elegance Femina in 1938. Before the War, it was sold to the United States and became one of three Teardrops in the ownership of LA playboy Tommy Lee. It eventually ended up in the collection of Lindley Locke and stored until 2001. Since then it has been acquired by the Nethercutt Collection and fully restored.
Chassis 90107 was seen in public for the first time in the 2005 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
