Teague's creation was an all aluminum automobile, including a V-12 OHV engine that used an aluminum block and heads. It started a new trend in fender design, with fenders that were streamlined with tight fitting wheel wells and smoothly integrated into the body. The design also included headlights that were flared into the fenders.

The owner, Ed Schoenthaler, found Teague and brought him to the show. Teague hadn't seen the car in nearly 70 years.
