A while back we showed you the dimensionally accurate replica of a Murphy body Duesenberg roadster that Steve Pasteiner’s Advanced Automotive Technologies built. Apparently, someone who owns a real one wanted to be able to drive in the same style but with modern mechanical components, perhaps in part to reduce the amount of wear and tear on his irreplaceable original. One’s tempted to say that he’s protecting his investment, but the replica build undoubted cost well into the six-figures so that’s hardly cheap ‘insurance’. Well, here’s a real Duesey with a roadster body from Murphy that was on display at the 2013 Concours of America at St. John’s, part of a category of luxury cars that were made in Indiana, like Marmon, Stutz and Duesenberg.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
