Lot 217

German-born automotive manufacturer (1876–1932). TLS signed “F. S. Duesenberg,” one page, 8.5 x 11, embossed Duesenberg ‘Straight 8’ letterhead, July 3, 1925. Letter to C. Harold Wills of automobile manufacturer Wills Sainte Claire, Inc. In part: “I certainly want to thank you for having submitted the blueprints and the other information that you have volunteered. I also note that you have some information which you think might be of value to us that you would like to give us direct rather than through a letter and if some of us should happen to be up in that territory we shall be pleased to drop in.” In fine condition, with rusty staple holes to upper left corner. Written upon extremely attractive and rare letterhead, this is an excellent association piece between two classic car manufacturers.

Estimate: $1800-2200
