Two years later, Mr. Dunkel and his bride-to-be sold the Twelve in order to purchase a 1936 Cadillac Series 60 Sedan. The car remained in California until Mr. Dunkel was able to re-locate it and once again purchase it in mid-January of 1968. The car was later restored to its former glory. In 1994, it completed the CCCA Pacific Northwest CARavan.
The current owner acquired the Twelve soon after in 1995. It won the AACA's Thomas McKean Tour Trophy in 2001. AACA First Junior and Senior Awards followed in 2002 and 2010 respectively. The Twelve has also completed a trio of AACA Glidden Tour events in Georgia, Michigan and Virginia.
In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the RM Auction's Amelia Island sale. It was estimated to sell for $250,000 - $300,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $352,000 inclusive of buyer's premium.
