The last owner has toured extensively in the car & thought nothing of driving down from Yorkshire to the ferry ports & embarking upon long sojourns through rural France. The car is absolutely on the button with a smooth powerful & silent continental engine & is more then ready for the next motoring season.

Durant motors had spread across America having plants in Long Island City. Bridge Port. New York. and Elizabeth. New Jersey. where this particular car was manufactured.
