Home of the most extensive Mitchell Motor Car Company collection.
If you want to get a quick glimpse of all the Mitchell automobiles that Lewis has in his collection, look no further than this page right here! Feel free to click on each picture to view it in a larger format accompanied by a fun fact about each car!
The 1904 Mitchell Runabout.
The 1904 Mitchell Runabout is a small, light vehicle that was considered a “ladies” car when it came out, as it didn’t require a lot of power to crank the motor or push the car while in neutral. This 1904 is shown with the optional top cover.
The 1906 Mitchell Runabout.
The 1906 Mitchell Runabout is shown without its top cover. Although light and without much power, when the top cover is removed, it is an exhilarating experience to go even 20 or 30 miles per hour down the road!
The 1908 5-Passenger Touring Car — note the huge headlights!
The fenders on the 1908 Touring Car look like wings!
A carbide generator was used for lights. Did you know rubber is white? Now black dye is added to keep the scuffs from showing.
1910 Mitchell Limousine-Landaulet
The 1910 Mitchell Limousine-Landaulet is a special vehicle in that it isn’t just a standard old-fashioned limousine. The back of the car is removable so that fresh air can be felt by the passengers without all of the air rushing straight into their faces!

The 1911 5-Passenger Touring Car
The 1911 Mitchell 3-Passenger Roadster has cushioned seats for two inside under the top cover and an open air seat on the back of the car as well. If a third person wasn’t traveling that day, the third back seat could be refitted like a trunk to carry groceries or a small suitcase for trips!
The 1911 Three-Passenger Roadster
Our first Mitchell — a 1914 5-Passenger Touring Car we named “Mitch.”
The 1914 5-passenger touring car is in Lewis’s shop for repairs. You can see why we call the rear storage compartment in our modern cars a “trunk!”
How would anyone know a beautiful car was hiding in these weeds??
This is a 1919 3-Passenger Coupe. The top is removable, but it doesn’t fold down into the car — you have to set it on the floor of your garage.
This panel delivery truck was made in 1919.
The radiator emblem and motometer from the 1919 truck. The motometer was added to the vehicle and acts as a thermostat for the radiator.
The 1920 Mitchell Sedan.
The 1920 Mitchell Sedan seen above is the only known Mitchell Sedan to exist currently. It doesn’t look as shiny as the other refurbished Mitchell’s because that is the original coat of paint and finish on the car! What do you think? Should the original coat of paint stay? Or should it be refinished like the other Mitchells?
The 1979 Citroën.
The 1979 Citroën isn’t actually a Mitchell, but it is part of Lewis Miller’s collection! It’s a cute little car with a whole lot of school spirit so it lives in the museum with all the other cars to keep it company.
What do you think about the 1920’s Mitchell Sedan paint job?
