I understand that J357 sold to someone in Houston. Since I live there, I'd like to know who the fellow Duesy owner is. If anyone knows, you can send me a private email at <a href="mailto:[email protected]][email protected][/url]

Thanks.

60 years ago,Raydon Thompson and I put a clutch in this car for Melvin Clemens.That is still a very low mileage car and I drove it several times and it was a very pleasant car.I see that it sold for a couple of million if I'm not mistaken.Melvin told me he paid $1400 for it in 1944.

Who ever it is, they sure got a great car. Here's hoping they enjoy & maintain it the way the Melvin & Harry did.

Car is now in a newer collection in Florida. It's keeping company with several other nice ACD products. We recently spent several weeks sorting the car and fixing some issues due to poor workmanship from the last few years of owenership. It's now running strong and is very reliable. We put about four hundred miles on it in late June. It's a pure joy to drive. Look for it at a concours this summer, and with a bit of luck at Auburn in 2017 if the dates work out. Ed.
