NEW TRUNK RACK FOR SEDAN (Feb, 1929)
Wow, I think this car marks the point when the “trunk” of a car ceased to be literally a trunk attached to the rear.
NEW TRUNK RACK FOR SEDAN
AMONG the models seen in the great automobile show at Olympia, England, was a Jowett fabric sedan. This car, as seen in the photo below, is completely covered with Jowett fabric.
Instead of equipping the car with a trunk rack and trunk, the luggage space was built within the body. The panel, in the back of the body, lifts out and upward on hinges. The opening thus exposed is large enough to hold a man and not unnecessarily crowd him.
The English motor car indicates the trend of European design.
