  1. Hello, I work for a private car collection and we have an ex-Harrah's car in our collection. I am looking to purchase a catalog from the 1985 auction. If anybody has one for sale please let me know, if not and somebody would be willing to scan the car I'm looking for I would appreciate the offer as well. Thanks very much!
  2. Hello Everyone looking for Duesenberg in any condition please let me know if you have any Thanks Davlet or David 414-six30-two853 email davlet145 (at) gmail.com
  3. One of my trucks was sold through the Salt Lake City Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg dealer. It happened to be the dealership that helped stage all the Aurbun, Cord, and Dusenberg-powered Mormon Meteor runs at Bonneville. Diamond Ts from that dealership were used on the salt as support vehicles. Selling at NO RESERVE: shaggy9822 | eBay Don 573-424-0089
  4. Hey folks, I may be a newbie here, but surely most, if not all Duesie fans, will be familiar with the vehicle of which I speak. I work at Canepa Design in Scotts Valley, CA, where the 1919 or 1921 (depending on who you speak to), Duesenberg Straight 8 or Model A (depending on who you speak to), chassis #601 and engine #1001 or chassis #602 and engine #1000 (depending on who you speak to), is painstakingly and lovingly being returned to its original configuration after the circa 1927 conversion/upgrade to many model J parts. While some information regarding this vehicle may still be in question, information I've garnered thus far, leads me to refer to it as a 1921 Duesenberg Straight 8 Model A with body by Bender, chassis #601 and engine #1001 (chassis and engine numbers confirmed by the original identification plate).The primary parts changed were; tires, Buffalo Wire wheels, ft. hubs, rear axles with hubs, front and rear bumpers, headlamps, some steering components, as well as a few other items changed along the way. Regardless, as this vehicle progresses through the restoration process, a few parts have become available to help some other Duesenberg owner complete their Model J projects. In particular the parts we are currently looking to determine a value and ultimately sell are both front, dual-post mount, headlamps (Guide Lamp we believe, based on markings on the reflector bucket and lenses - although some have reported, based on old photos, that they may be early C.M. Hall or Bausch and Lomb) and the fender to fender mounting bar with four posts. Also, the front and rear, upper and lower bumpers, retaining plates with hardware and mounting brackets. And, both front wheel hubs with Wire Wheel Corp of A. Buffalo NY (Buffalo Wire Wheel) C6 wheel locks, both rear axles (hollow) with integral hubs and Buffalo C6 wheel lock (all wheel locks carry the Duesenberg name plate in the center of the cap). And to top it off, all six matching Buffalo 78 spoke wire wheels with tires (note: five tires are Firestone High Speed Gum Dipped Heavy Duty 6-Ply and one is a U.S. Royal Tempered Rubber Heavy Duty 6-Ply, all are 7.00-19 and black-wall. Also the tires allegedly pre-date WWII and thus are suitable for show purpose only). I have pictures available to anyone who is interested. If you can help me with determining a value, or may be interested in purchasing these parts for your own project or inventory, please contact me via the links on this forum. Thanks for reading. P.S., the car is nearing completion and we will be posting more photos of it here and at our company website: www.canepa.com
  5. I am working on a Deusenberg Restoration and am looking for parts; any sincere help and suggestions would be appreciated.

  6. I'm looking for any info I can find regarding Wilkinson Motors in Salt Lake City. O.J. Wilkinson owned the Auburn Cord Duesenberg dealership and also the Diamond T truck dealership. I have a couple photos of the ACD dealership with Wilkinson and race driver Ab Jenkins. I can't find anything regarding the Diamond T dealership other than a few photos of Wilkinson Diamond Ts with the Mormon Meteor at Bonneville. I'd like to uncover more details, becuase I just found a model 201 pickup that came from Wilkinson motors that had been hiding out in the Utah desert since 1965. Some of the photos and clues I've been collecting are online at Salt Lake Diamond T I'm looking for more info to document the history of this truck.
  7. Hey guys, Check out this neat video on a cool old Duesenberg! I am working for the Historic Vehicle Association as an intern this summer and thought you all might find this interesting! They filmed it down at Amelia last spring. Thanks, Casey
  8. Today I was walking through the neighborhood, a historic area with lots of side streets and unique homes to happen across, and there is one specific home with a '72 Mercedes sedan that I always walked past and admired. Today the owners were out doing yard work so I chatted them up, we shared stories and I got a lead on some interior work should I ever choose to go that route, but fascinatingly the gentleman told me that he once owned a Duesenberg and sold it in the 1960's for $1,200. I enjoyed the half hour spent chatting on the sidewalk, and even got invited back soon for more conversation and homemade carrot cake! I just wanted to share because I find it amazing how often cars bring people together. Their Benz traveled from the East coast, to Hawaii, overseas at some point and now, here to Oregon. I can't wait to hear all the reasons why, and learn more about his Duesey ownership!
  9. I don't recall seeing this website referenced on the forum before. It has several nice photos of movie stars and their cars. Hollywood Golden Days...Glamorous Stars, Amazing Cars Don

  11. I have recently come into possession of two books and several other items concerning Duesenberg and associated cars, and I am offering them for sale.

  13. The following photographs were sent to me several years ago by the late Lou Brehmer of Phoenix, Arizona. Lou had lived in Chicago in his earlier years. I don't know if he had ever been an AACA or ACD club member or not but he was a long time member of the Classic Car Club Of America. Lou took these photographs in 1948. Whether they were all on the same used car lot or not, I'm not sure but on the back of one of the pictures of the Blue Cord with the '40 Ford Headlights (a not uncommon CORD modification for the times) was written the following; Neidlingers Brothers Garage, 71st and Stoney Island Avenue, Chicago, Illinois, August 1948, Price: $750.00. The picture of the CORD with the SUNROOF was of the most interest to me as I'm pretty positive that it is the 1937 Custom Beverly that my late father, long time AACA and ACD Club member Marlet "Speed" Davis rescued from destruction the next day in May of 1962 for the sum of $50.00 and I now own. This particular CORD was purchased new from the Merrill Madsen CORD Dealership in Minneapolis, Minnesota by Chicago Band Leader, Lou Breese (real name Luigi Calabrese) who lived in Minneapolis for 12 years. I would love to find more information on these photographs and especially would like to find some photographs of Lou Breese with the SUNROOF CORD or any other Photographs of this car that may exist.
