About Us



Gatsby is a midnight blue 1948 Plymouth P-15 Special Deluxe with a flathead six cylinder engine, split windshield, push button ignition, pinstriped wool upholstery, and suicide doors.  She fits four passengers and a driver with room to spare. Plymouth bragged she was spacious enough to sit in without taking your hat off.  After WWII automakers were eager to retool and redesign their vehicles.  The P-15 was among the last of the big fender art deco era cars that had dominated the road since the early 1930s.  This is a vintage original car that sounds, looks, and drives just as she did after rolling off the line at the Los Angeles factory. 


Gatsby's standard rate is $90 an hour.  On weekends (Friday-Sunday) we have a $150 minimum.  You will be billed from pick up to drop off time.  Many chauffeur services charge based on 'garage to garage' time.  We feel this is unfair to the customer and a method of bill padding.  However, if you are located outside of Seattle city limits or Mercer Island a travel fee (generally $50) may apply.  If you are pleased with our service a customary tip of 15% is appreciated. 


We are a father and son business, a retired history teacher and a part time lawyer, who appreciate old motors and old-fashioned customer service.  We phone before picking you up, confirm all engagements the day before, and meet with you in person to make custom arrangements.  Unless requested otherwise, we wear formal attire.  We are located in the Mt. Baker neighborhood of Seattle, and are fully licensed and insured.
