Dual Cowl Phaeton
Chassis #: 801
In the spring of 1928 duPont Motors announced that it would start producing a new model. The Model G was offered in eight different body styles and was priced starting at $4,300. All of the Model G bodies were hand built using white ash frames covered with aluminum panels. The new Modell G featured Continental's new 8-cylinder engine, producing an impressive 125 horsepower. Chassis features included a Warner 3-speed transmission, hydraulic shock absorbers and Belflex spring shackles that gave a very smooth ride.
This is the first Model G to be built and it has a 5-passenger Phaeton body built by the Merrimac Body Company of Massachusetts. Of the 22 Model G Phaetons produced, only three are known to exist today.
