1925 Duesenberg Eight Speedway Roadster is a Sole Survivor

Auction

This 1925 Duesenberg Roadster is believed to be the only known surviving three-liter Duesenberg straight-eight still in existence. It is a recreation of Pete De Paolo's 1925 Indianapolis winner and is set to be auctioned off at the upcoming Amelia Island sale on March 12th by RM Auctions. It's fitted with a 225 hp supercharged inline eight-cylinder engine that's mated to a three-speed manual transmission.

It also has a live axle suspension with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and hydraulic rear-wheel-only drum brakes. Up until August 2007, it was part of a private collection and was constructed with customized parts that closely matched the originals. The body was built from scratch with assistance from the Indianapolis Museum who provided the original frame drawings and blueprints. Previous owner Dave Uihlein also had extensive cosmetic work done to it in order to insure authenticity. It is estimated to be worth between $200,000 to $275,000.
