Classic Car Overview

RB Collection is pleased to offer this rare and fascinating 1925 Rickenbacker D6 Coach Brougham. The Coach Brougham was one of the more luxurious bodies offered by Rickenbacker, recognizable for its faux landau irons and oval rear quarter windows. This lovely car has been in the same hands since the 1970s, with the owner treating the car to a cosmetic restoration approximately ten years ago. It is a sharp and attractive car, finished in a period color scheme and pleasingly well-detailed. The tri-tone black, brown, and cream livery is attractive and crisp with good quality paintwork. The body is in very good condition, with handsome, understated styling. It rides on period-correct wooden artillery wheels, with blackwall tires. Typical of the mid-1920s the plating and brightwork is minimal, though the few nickel-plated fittings are in good condition.

Opening the door reveals a remarkably well-preserved original interior. The fabric seats are in outstanding condition for their age, with a warm and pleasing patina to the seats and carpets. The door panels, headlining and interior panels also appear to be original, showing some slight aging but remaining in finely preserved condition. Details such as the rear window shade and interior opera lights add a sense of luxury, while the comfortable front seat points to this being a car for the owner-driver.
Mechanically, the Rickenbacker was well ahead of its competition. The 236 cubic-inch inline six produced a respectable 68 horsepower with remarkable smoothness and refinement. Our in-house restoration experts have inspected this great car and found it to have a strong engine compression and to be in sound mechanical order. It runs well and drives like a car several years newer, thanks to the smooth engine and excellent brakes. This is a tidy and attractive car, suitable for use on tours, club events and for casual shows and cruises. Very few Rickenbackers have survived through the years, and they are rarely found on the open market. This 1925 Coach Brougham is a wonderful example from this ill-fated yet fascinating marque. Despite the commercial failure and short production run, the Rickenbacker automobile proved to be worthy of the great man’s name.
