Hi All,

I read in a few books that there was a Duesenberg dealership in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - does anyone have any references and or photos to show where this dealership was? I would be fascinating to find out :D

Thanks,

Brian

Hi All,

It's taken me 10 years of research, but I've finally located the Duesenberg Factory Branch of Pittsburgh! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

In this article I found in the Pittsburgh Press from May 4, 1930, Duesenberg Vice President Harold T. Ames announced the opening of the Pittsburgh factory branch. The showroom was located at 4010 Fifth Avenue, which was then the Schenley Arms Apartment Building, luxury condos for the city's high rollers.

Unfortunately, that building, and most everything else in the area, was razed within the last 40 years to make room for the University of Pittsburgh offices and dorms that now occupy that space. Today nothing, not even a marker plaque, remains of this great part of Pittsburgh's rich historic past. <!-- s:evil: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_evil.gif" alt=":evil:" title="Evil or Very Mad" /><!-- s:evil: -->

Here in Huntington WV the Bruce Perry Motor Company located at 4th Avenue and 7th Street had a franchise for these three cars.The main
sales were Chrysler-Desoto with the ACD franchise as an "Us too"thing.
A couple of Auburns,one L29 and one "J" were known to have been sold
by Perry Motors. The "J' was J357,a disappearing top MCC in 1930.
