Beep Beep'm Beep Beep Yeah!

Gary Cooper 1951  Montery Mercruy

William Powell admires Gary Cooper's duesenberg .

The Duesenberg was considered one of the most popular luxury cars, driven by Clark Gable, Gary Cooper. Each driving one of the two very rare SSJ 125″ short-wheelbase convertibles. You can also add Al Capone, Evelyn Walsh McLean, Greta Garbo, Howard Hughes, Mae West, Marion Davies, Tyrone Power, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, William Randolph Hearst to the list of Duesnberg proud owners.

The following Pictures were provided by Gilby37.


  1. I'll bet he looked totally gorgeous behind the wheel!! I'd take a spin with him any day!!

  2. Gary is far more enticing perched on a spiffy-looking Deusenberg than he is next to that frumpy Mercury (it looks like an oversized sow bug)!

  3. I wish these pictures were in color. :(

  4. My Dad owned a model of the Gary Cooper Dusenberg -- I remember it being green with yellow accents. It was sold by Franklin mint I believe. I'll see if the internet has any pictures.

  5. I bet your Dad loved his car, it is absolutely fabulous. That would be great if you could find pictures to share with us.

  6. Gilby37, Thank you sooooo much for finding the pictures. The Duesenberg, is so much more beautiful than I imagined.
