Sold for $235,200 at 2019 Bonhams : Quail Lodge Auction.
This Duesenberg Model A Roadster was originally owned by Colonel Daniel Cowal Jackling. It was later owned by a German family and then by Walter Douglas, Jr., of Tucson, Arizona, for whom a former title, dated 1934, still resides with the vehicle. By this point in history, the Duesenberg had become a 'stake bed' truck, used on a farm and later at a small airport, to pull tail-dragger airplanes to and from hangars. It spent many years in this guise.

It spent two decades in the ownership of John Guilliams, who acquired it in the mid-1990s. The current owner acquired it in 2014. It retained its original four fenders and hood. The frame was found to be in good, solid condition thanks to the dry Arizona climate. A restoration soon followed using copies of original Duesenberg drawings. The rear axle was fitted with a high-ratio ring and pinion gear. The engine was rebuilt with new poured bearings and forged pistons. The chassis and all ancillary components were restored, with the chassis being sectioned and shortened to 136 inches, and fitted with a new body. It was a reconstruction of the Indianapolis coachbuilders Millspaugh & Irish for the Model A roadster.
