2010-09-02Cars, vintage fashion, and Alaskan history under one roof.
Whether you are traveling to Alaska or live here, the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum is well worth a visit. The Museum collection features over 70 historically significant automobiles produced in the United States prior to World War II. Can you believe U.S. car manufacturers used electric, internal combustion, and gas powered motors as early as the late 1800s? Historical Alaskan photographs line the walls and a vintage fashion collection follows the cars through time.
The Museum is owned by Fountainhead Development, Inc. and is located at Wedgewood Resort in Fairbanks, Alaska.
The Fountainhead Collection includes 72 historically significant American automobiles, approximately 55 of which are on display at one time. Each illustrates important developments in early American automotive history. Some highlights of the collection include early steam, electric and hybrid cars, one-of-a-kind and sole-surviving vehicles, a cyclecar, the United States’ first V16-powered auto, midget racers and the first American production car with front-wheel drive.
