“This is an original 1929 Durant that came straight out of a barn. Still has the barn dust and dirt on and in it. It is in need of restoring but what a great car it can be.

This was an Oregon car that was purchased in July, 1939 by Dr Geraldine Price of Estacade, Oregon.”

Re: 29 Durant 66 sedan sold on eBay

A little more info on the Durant. Since it has been sitting so long, it is probably not listed in our registry, but the serial number is listed. The seller's phone number is listed and he may be interested in telling who the new owner is so it could be added to our registry.

"The body is straight, no major dents or dings. There is no rust that I have found. The wood spoked wheels appear to be straight and true. This car was stored in an Oregon barn for over 50 years. It was last registered in Oregon in 1961 at a cost of $5.00 a year. The metal placard shows that the "66" Durant was built in Oakland, California as car #5679. The mileage is unknown but the odometer shows 96,115.

The Durant does not run and it has a hole in the roof from a leaky barn roof. The right doors do not close properly. Take a look at the pictures and if you would like more pictures let me know and I will get them to you.

I will assist in shipping by helping to load a trailer or assisting a commercial hauler. Call me if you would like to come see this piece of history."

Re: 29 Durant 66 sedan sold on eBay

Yes Bob, it was on eBay Sept 29 orig and is a 1930 model year 66 C-5679 and 15L engine number then was 21287. Seems we may have to alter the Registry to another engine number We went after the info back then.

He says, on eBay, last registered 1961 but ownership says March 31 1975. Someone in its past painted it that colour with over spray in the engine compartment, added the electric fuel pump then it got put in a barn or shed later to sit. Can't recall what he told us about the cars movements.

Still awaiting your 4 cars info for the Registry, grin.
