Ex-Congressman William "Fishbait" Miller
1947 Dodge D24 Custom
Chassis no. 30833683

Introduced in 1946, here is one such example of Dodge's top trim level, the D24 Custom. What D24 lacked in aesthetics, it made up for in proven engineering features. This D24 appealed to non-other than Mississippi native William Miller. Known for his flamboyant personality and affinity for public spotlight, "Fishbait", having served the 83rd Congress is most fondly remembered for his distinctive announcement of, "'Mr. Speaker, the President of The United States". It is believed that "Fishbait" purchased the vehicle off his then friend Pop Curtis. The car would be seen caravanning notable passengers and parked on the Capitol Grounds, nearby the building itself. Regularly used and serviced, the car was donated to the University of Mississippi in the mid-1980s before being acquired by the Museum in the early 2000s. Seldom if ever again will a car of this type with this provenance be offered, one better hook and reel this Dodge in.
