From the display:

This housecar is believed to have been built by an unknown custom carriage maker and woodworking artist. The floors are yellow pine and cabinetry and interior is oak and yellow poplar. The seats for driver and passenger were added by the restorers, it originally ahad flat benches without backs to sit on.

The donor discovered it in a barn in Athens, Alabama in 1999 and was able to acquire it. He and a friend, Dennis Edwards, a master woodworker, began the restoration in July 2002 and it was completed in June 2003. White gave it the Tennessee Traveler name. All hardware and much of the wood is original. The engine ran fine the day it was purchased even after having been stored for other 40 years.
