Feature Museum Car:

1934             Duesenberg Model JA

This car is one of only a handful of its kind believed to be outside the United States and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere.  According to Duesenberg records the original owner of the car was Hollywood actress Carole Lombard who shared her passion for luxury cars, especially Duesenbergs, with her husband Clark Gable.  The car came into New Zealand ownership in 2011. It had previously been owned by the same American owner since the early 1950s.  When it arrived in New Zealand a start had been made on restoration but a team of Wanaka craftsmen went back to the beginning to bring the vehicle back to its original glory.
