Thanks alot for looking at them. So are you saying they are all replicas or kits.

Bottom line are they worth anything?


Yes, they are all replicars except the customized 1936 Cord. Yes, they have value but not as great as the originals. Quite often, these modern neo-classics are listed in some of the old car value guide books and most banks/insurance co.'s use a book called "Cars of Peticular Interest" which has values on vehicles not in "NADA" or "Kelly Blue Books". The old original Cord that is modified or customized may be of interest to the custom/street rod crowd. Of course, condition is a factor and they need to be runable to get potential buyer's interest. Many Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg owners have replicars as weekend drivers. This group of sleepy time vehicles is still quite a find!

I saw these cars awhile ago. The current owner is trying to pass the Duesenbergs off as "continuation" cars. The Cord has a roof from a 1938 Chevy on it. Last I knew the owner was very unrealistic on values.
