The unveiling of two of the greatest car makers, Fred and August Duesenberg, in bronze, is set to happen September 7, 2015. These remarkable life size bronze statues will stand to remind all of the hard work and dedication these brothers set into the evolution of the engine. From working on airplane engines for WWI to the first straight, side by side, 8 cylinder engine, the Duesenberg's had a great impact on the classic car industry and are still known today for their state of the art luxury vehicles. All because of a love for racing and a knack for discovering the unknown.
Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum will house these statues along with 8 others that are in the works. This museum, located in Auburn Indiana, is the largest Duesenberg Museum in the world and is the official museum of the Duesenberg's. The museum holds over 120 automobiles and related artifacts and is continually adding to their incredible collection; these beautiful bronze statues to be the next addition.
These life-size statues have been delicately sculpted by lead sculptor Matt Glenn and his team at Big Statues in Provo, Utah. Matt has worked closely with the museum to make sure each detail is exactly as imagined and that the personality, work ethic, and engine loving brothers are captured in the most exquisite way. Fred will be dressed in his business attire as he mostly handled all the different business opportunities as their company and ideas grew. August, or more commonly known as Augie, will be dressed in his coveralls ready to get to work on another part. Many pictures, history, and experiences have been shared between Matt Glenn and the Museum to ensure the quality work.
The unveiling will also come along with a rally of 400 of the Duesenberg's relatives including grandchildren, great-grandchildren and so forth. The unveiling will celebrate the hard work and dreams of the Duesenberg brothers and how it has impacted the generations after them and those still to come.
