1 of 3 prototypes built. Styled by the legendary Auburn, Cord Duesenberg designer Gordon Buehrig and built in collaboration with Richard Kughn of the Car Rail Museum and Kughn Collection of Detroit. Only 3 examples were produced although plans were to build 50 units at a retail price of $130,000 each in 1980! New Corvettes were used as the base platform. The 3 cars are as follows:


The blue car - this was Gordon Buehrigs personal car and the blue color with a blue and yellow .....
leather interior was selected as a nod to his Swiss ancestry. This car resides in the ""Buehrig Room"" at the ACD Museum in Auburn Indiana.


The cream and orange car - this was Richard Kughn's personal car and the first one ever sold. We purchased this car from the Kughn estate in 2017 with a mere 1,800 miles on the odometer. The color combination was selected to match his show winning Duesenberg. We sold this car to Bob Simpson, owner of Bob's Classic Cars. At it's height, the Kughn Collection numbered 280 cars!


The maroon car - This was Linda Kughn's personal car and its the one now being offered at auction on Sunday July 9th at the Mecum auction in Kissimmee Florida. Only 2,500 miles and recently acquired from the Kughn estate. It's the first time being advertised for sale. Built from a new Corvette in 1981. The VIN therefore decodes to a 1981 Corvette and the drivetrain is stock Corvette. Only 2,500 miles since new and stored in a climate controlled garage. It remains all original and in near showroom condition today. The build quality is remarkable! Asking $50,000 obo. Call Dave Murray at 407 592-5039 for details.
