News from the Duesenblog:

(June 2007) The Worldwide Group conducted an auction of the Sterling McCall Old Car Museum collection, including a 1934 SJ LWB Derham Tourster. No serial number info was given. At the June 23, 2007 auction the Tourster brought $407,000. That is quite a difference from another Tourster, J444, that sold earlier this month for over $1.4 Million!

Does anyone know anything about this car, or have any pics? Sounds too cheap for a supercharged Tourister.

Greg Riley replied the topic: It was at Keels & Wheels
The car was at Keels and Wheels and it showed very well. I believe someone had something disparaging to say about it, but I don't remember any specifics. I believe the car was formerly of the Jerry J. Moore collection.

I spoke to Sterling just before the auction but didn't specifically ask him about the Duesenberg. He is converting his museum to an all Cadillac facility. He said that in his opinion that Cadillac is the ultimate in attainable American luxury. Pretty ironic comment from a man who made his fortune selling Toyota's and Lexus.

Thanks for the info and the pic Greg. Does anyone know the #s on the car?
It is my understanding that there were several Derham Tourister replica bodies produced back in the '70's. I wonder if this is one of them, hence the low price? <!-- s:?: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_question.gif" alt=":?:" title="Question" /><!-- s:?: -->

Joel,
At that price it would almost certainly have to be one of the Roxas rebodies, but Randy Ema will probably weigh in with the correct info when he gets a chance.

Thanks! :D
How accurate were the Roxas rebodies? I talked to an owner of one and he told me that they identicle to the original bodys.
