Prewar American cars aren't dead yet


#1

The Pebble Beach auctions this year featured the remarkable sale of the 1935 Duesenberg SSJ Roadster for $22,000,000 by Gooding & Company. Is that an exception or was it a return to form for cars from the great prewar American makes? (For anyone wondering what the prewar category is, it’s any example built by one of the following makes before 1942: American, Auburn, Buick, Cadillac, Chrysler, Cord, Du Pont, Duesenberg, Franklin, Lincoln, Locomobile, Marmon, Mercer, Packard, Pierce-Arrow, Ruxton, and Stutz.)
