'29 for sale

Howdy, haven't dropped by in a while, but I noticed an ad for an unrestored/#4 or 5 '29 Durant sedan, thought I'd send it along.

Good news: Asking $1,800
Bad news: Argentina


Also '27 Rugby & '28 Durant in SA

I went back to the AR Cars site today--and there's now a '27 Rugby, four-door touring car, and a '28 Durant "Doble" phaeton.

A search turns up two more Rugbys, a '28 convertible pickup and a '27 two-door sedan.

Re: Also '27 Rugby & '28 Durant in SA

Just wondering if Durant in SA means South Australia.
We have a 1926 Rugby which is currently being restored. Hope to put pictures on site soon.

Re: '29 for sale

Wow according to their listings below the picture they have the Durant, and 7 Rudby's in various condition for sale. That's quite alot in one place to have for sale. Argentina must have been a very successful sales Market for the exported Durants. I wonder of most of them came out of the Elizabeth plant or California plant?

Do You own a car built by Durant? 1928 Model 65 4dr

Re: '29 for sale

Perhaps from the Canadian plant. They were used for shipping to British Commonwealth countries to reduce import duties. Because of their expertise in packing, etc., they might have done South America, too.

Do You own a car built by Durant? yes

Re: '29 for sale

Mine and most of the Durant products I have seen in Argentina come from Elizabeth plant. Cars were sold as Rugbies but some Durants can be seen, in general 6 cylinders. Most of the cars were Touring.

Best regards

Re: '29 for sale

Kind of figured the car might be from the Elizabeth Plant, since it appears most of the Leaside Canada cars went to the current and former British Colonies. Probably because export/import taxes were more friendly between these countries.
