When Stephen Phillips graduated from Harvard in 1929, he and four friends took a road trip from Vancouver to Colorado. The boys lived out of Hosmer Norris' 1929 Model A Ford. Stephen and his wife Betty purchased this 1929 Model A Ford in 1942 and it was likely used for pleasure drives with the family. It is currently on display at the Phillips House in Salem, Massachusetts.
