Henry Mitchell was born in Scotland in 1810. He moved to the United States in 1834. There he started a successful business making chariots that could be pulled by a horse. He died in 1893 and his son-in-law, William Turner Lewis, took over the business. The car was now on the rise and like so many entrepreneurs of the time, William Turner Lewis first tried to manufacture engines. In 1902 600 engines were manufactured. the Mitchell company started building cars in 1903. The experience she had gained in manufacturing engines helped enormously. 1903 was an important year for the automobile as it was also the year Henry Ford produced his first car. Over the years, Mitchell focused more and more on the manufacture of large fashionable “Touring Cars”. Today there are only 150 Mitchell’s left. Our 1917 Mitchell D40 Junior Touring is one of them. The car has withstood the test of time quite well. If you consider that the car is now more than 103 years old. A lot has to be done to be able to keep up well for the next 103 years. The car needs extensive restoration. Currently, the car is not running. The interior needs to be reupholstered. The sheet metal needs to be partly repaired and repainted and the chassis also needs some attention. It is important to mention that the Mitchell is practically complete. This makes it an excellent basis for a complete restoration. In short, a very nice car from a bygone era that forms an excellent basis for a top restoration.
