  • 1935 Duesenberg “Mormon Meteor” – The Governor’s Cup – Best in Show

The 2014 Elegance at Hershey, held last Sunday on Father’s Day, June 15 was like all previous editions of the outstanding event, a total success. The event featured more than 60 rare collector cars, and today we are featuring some of the earlier cars on exhibit. Harry Yeaggy’s 1935 Model SJ Duesenberg Mormon Meteor Speedster, restored to its 1935 configuration by Chris Charlton’s Collector Car Services took home The Governor’s Cup – Best in Show award. A period film and photos of it can be found here.

The Elegance is a by invitation-only event that showcases rare and unique automobiles from both the pre-war and post-war eras. In addition to the concours, the event also includes The Grand Ascent, which is a VSCCA sponsored Hill Climb. It uses the 7/10-mile  challenging back road into The Hotel Hershey, which was used for The Hershey Hill Climb held there between 1958 and 1970 by the Appalachian Sports Car Club.

The event benefits the JDRF (formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), the AACA Museum and the AACA Library and Research Center. You can find out more about this prestigious event at The Elegance At Hershey, and also learn more about the VSCCA sanctioned The Grand Ascent here. Take a moment to visit with Matthew Little’s Studio 721 who provided these fine images of the show.

    The Brewsters were built on a Ford chassis in those years. The Voisin may have been a V12 model…
