HERSHEY, Pa. _ Since its first event in 2011, The Elegance at Hershey has wowed attendees with some of the most rare, gorgeous cars ever created, and this year is no different. Five Duesenbergs, considered by some the finest American car ever built, will grace the field at the Hotel Hershey June 12.
This year's lineup wil include:
- A 1933 long-wheelbase Victoria coupe bodied by Rollston from the William E. Swigart, Jr. Antique Auto Museum.
- A 1933 Berline Touring Sedan featuring coachwork by Franay of Paris. This car, from the collection of Donnie Gould of Florida, was nicknamed "The Queen of Diamonds" and originally delivered to Countess Porceri who frequently could be found with $250,000 worth of jewelry on her person.
- A 1932 coupe bodied by Judkins from Richie Clyne of Las Vegas. Only two of these cars were built, and this car is the sole remaining example.
- John and Ethel North of St. Michaels, Md., will grace the showfield with their unrestored 1933 Model SJ convertible coupe by Murphy. John bought this car in 1953 for $2,250 and owned it ever since.
- Robert, Sandy and Gary Bahre of Oxford, Me., will bring 1934 SJ Torpedo convertible Victoria by Rollston. It's long, low profile with gracefully-sculpted body and Rollston-designed 'scoop' fenders create a powerful 'mean looking' presentation.
