    Cooper Duesenberg at auction

    When I started this thread I never thought I'd unearth such a wealth of great information. I appreciate it and hope it keeps on coming. Thanks everyone

    I have only driven 7-8 Js but all of them were a delight. The best was a Rolston bodied Convertible Coupe, supercharged. It was mostly original and drove better than my modern car. No problems with hitting the dashboard while shifting for me.

    Cooper Duesenberg at auction

    I couldn't agree more. I know at least four people here in Michigan who have more th han enough money and more than enough interest in driving the csr. Indeed it wil be an interesting auction. I have appreciated all the lively interest.

    I was thinking the other SSJ (which actually never was owned by Gable) that was owned for 40+ years by Al Ferrara in Ohio. Last I saw it his daughter was driving it but that was maybe 7-8 years ago.

    I am curious if you found a car. Fill us in.

    Cooper Duesenberg at auction

    Great comments everyone. I personally hope it winds up here in Michigan and there are several collectors here who can both afford it and may be interested. I agree that I sincerely hope it does not wind up as a trophy and hope it is driven and enjoyed. I was not aware that the Gable car (J567) wound up in the Collier collection. Last I knew Al Fererrar's family still owned it but it may have quietly changed hands.
  7. There is some discussion on another site about the ex-Gary Cooper Duesenberg SSJ that Gooding is going to sell. Some think it could set a record for the most expensive American car ever sold. What do you folks think? Personally, I've decided if the lottery works out, I am going to buy it!
  8. Good thinking.
  9. I see some speculation on another site that this car when it is auctioned may set a record for the most expensive American car ever sold. While I tend to agree I can't help wondering what the rest of you think and how much it may fetch.

    In honor of Father’s Day

    Victoria, thanks for such a wonderful and timely thread. I also have to say how much I have appreciated the subsequent additions. I hope everyone enjoys the weekend. I'm taking my Lincoln and kids to the Motor Muster in Greenfield Village. It should be fun.

    Here is my dad behind the wheel of his 26 Model T Fordor. My sister (left) my cousins (middle) and I (right) can't wait for our ride. Below is the same group at dad's memorial earlier this year. Missing him a lot today.

    1925 Chandler

    Photos of the car will help answer that question. Best of luck with the sale of the car.

    1931 Ford Model A-400 Convertible Sedan

    Ford called this a convertible sedan. Regardless of the name, you are right. The car is beautiful.

    Auburn meet

    I attended though for a variety of reasons my 26 T had to sit this one out. It was another excellent show despite the threat all day of truly cruddy weather. Many thanks to Steve and the AACA staff for another great show in Auburn.
