Celebrities liked the duPont, too. Mary Pickford bought the original show car as a birthday present for her husband, Douglas Fairbanks. Jack Dempsey and Will Rogers bought their own. Huntington Hartford, whose A&P grocery chain was flourishing, was another purchaser.
This is the only known example of the Model G Waterhouse Roadster known to survive today. Waterhouse was best known for the luxurious Victoria bodies seen on many American marques but they created ten of these roadsters for duPont. This car was first sold to Charles List, a money manager from Los Angeles who managed to keep his wealth throughout the Great Depression - quite an achievement considering that an expensive roadster was not exactly a necessity. List treasured this car until the 1960s when he sold it to William Harrah, who in turn sold it to the California collector John Mozart. After the car was restored, Jerry Riegel, a member of the du Pont family, saw it and convinced his cousin W.K. du Pont to buy it. The current owner acquired the car in 2011.
