It's been over a century, but an antique car manufactured in Waltham back in 1905 is returning to its roots.
The bright red Waltham-Orient touring car was built at the old Waltham Manufacturing Company on Rumford Avenue, and recently donated to the Waltham Museum by a collector in Florida, according to a press release from the museum.
The Waltham Museum will be naming a room after the donor, George Albright, who is considered an authority on Waltham-manufactured cars and bicycles. This model featured seating for five people, and a four-cylinder air-cooled engine with 16 horsepower.
The Waltham-Orient joins six other automobiles that are waiting to be housed in the Museum's new home at 25 Lexington Street.
