If I find one, I’ll post it. What you see below IS NOT a real classic car:

1931 Cord LaGrande Speedster

This is a bolt-by-bolt recreation of Jean Harlow’s lost one-of-a-kind 1931 Cord LaGrande Speedster, owned by famed Cord collector Arnie Addison. And it’s featured in my new July issue of Automobile magazine.

Of course, a Cord is hardly a Duesenberg, But the Duesy couldn’t match the low cowl height afforded by the Cord’s FWD. The effect is stunning – as if you could take an SJ and section a foot out of the body, and then deep-six the spare in favor of a nice tidy boattail.
