Hello,

the Throne car is under offer at Quail Lodge Sale, 18 Aug 2011 to 19 Aug 2011

Estimate: $ 400000 - $ 600000

http://www.bonhams.com/usa/auction/19363/lot/420/


As well as this "nice" :rolleyes:Duesy http://www.prewarcar.com/classifieds/ad57199.html

and this rebuilt Torpedo Pheaton: http://www.prewarcar.com/classifieds/ad57203.html

Are that all O'Quinn cars?

It seems there are a lot of offers of high class prewar cars this year.

Looks like a lot of collectors (or their inheritors) want to (or must) make cash.

The results could be interesting...

Hello,

I just checked the Bonhams-homepage about the results of the Quail Lodge auction.
It looks like that Bonhams has not sold any of the three offered Duesenbergs.

Is that right?

Hello,

according to an article (incl. a picture) at the german classic car magzine "Oldtimer Markt", the "Throne car" is now -displayed at/a part of- the Louwman Collection in Den Haag (The Hague) in the Netherlands.

If I got it right, the Collection sold a Murphy Convertible Sedan last year (@Pebble Beach?) and bought the Throne car instead.

An article I wrote on the Throne Car has been in the tiller to go into the newsletter for a while now. We're trying to find better recent pictures.

Bob Roller replied the topic: Throne car
The wheel problem was supposedly wire wheels failing because of the weight of this mechanical abomination.The sheer weight of the car + a fan club was too much. In recent times,I THINK that the O'Quinn collection had it restored by Mr.Roxas.I saw pictures of it as a dismantled car in his shop.
