|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
It has been treated to a full restoration which was performed a number of years ago. The paint has lost some of its luster and glow and there are some scratches and dings throughout. The wire wheels are painted red and there are dual side-mounted spares. The cycle fenders are removable and there are doors only on the passenger side. The interior is finished in red leather and there is a Waltham 8-day clock, a Waltham 100 mph Speedometer, a Weston ammeter, Stewart tachometer and duPont-logo gauges for fuel, temperature and oil pressure.
This duPont Speedster was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars sale at Hershey, PA presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $400,000 - $600,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for a high bid of $704,000 and was one of the highlights of the auction.
It is powered by an L-head eight-cylinder engine that displaces 322 cubic-inches and produces 125 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. The 125-inch wheelbase is held in place by a solid front axle and a live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs in both front and rear.
