Re: Durant touring cars.

hI fOLKS:

That 614 Durant touring is in a museum at Kingsville. The owner belonged to DMAC for years and we had a Durant meet there in the early 2000's/
The owner is Harry Bergman and as far as I know he still owns the car. Somewhere I had pictures of his 614 Phaeton alongside Reg Bents Rugby Phaeton. They looked quite different because Harry's 614 had bigger tires than Reg's and it sure changed to look of the car.
BUT IT REALLY EXISTS.
This museum is really one that you should try to go to if you ever visit Ontario. We do have some great museums with some very rare cars.

Re: Durant touring cars.

I saw the photo of Reg's car and spoke to him recently. It was an export car to Argentina and was brought back to NA. I was thinking more of one sold in the US or Canada as a Durant.

Re: Durant touring cars.

Thank you Gord .. checked the 2006 Roster and sure enough Harry had a 1926 Star M touring, 1930 614 Sedan and 1931 614 Phaeton. Checked Steve's Registry and we only have the Star and 1930 mentioned with no info on either car for colour / vin / engine serial etc. Last Roster is 2014 with Harry and Mia mentioned and 3 cars.
