Hello Howard,
I believe Gary Cooper’s yellow & green Duesenberg is currently on display at the Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich, MA. Looks like a good place for a LIMPPS meeting.

Howard, I thought that it was still on display at the Heritage Museum and Gardens up in Sandwich Mass.  If not, then I am certain Randy Emma knows of its location…

From Hugh Nutting:

“Hi Howard,  The first 1928 Model A built, a 2 dr sedan was given to Thomas Edison by Henry Ford.  He wanted to use it at his Florida home and sent it back to Dearborn where a 4 dr Touring body was installed.  It is still at his estate and lab museum near Naples along with his son-in-laws Brewster Ford town car.  Hugh”
