We visit the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Company… Amazing!

Posted by admin January - 21 - 2014 - Tuesday

While in Tulsa, Oklahoma attending our tenth consecutive Chili Bowl Midget Racing Championship, we made the short trip down OK 51 to Broken Arrow and visited the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Co. In that the Chili Bowl racing program doesn’t get rolling until 6:00pm it is important to have a selection of great car guy hangouts to pass the hours until the green flag drops. The ACD Company is definitely a great place to visit.

Glen Pray bought the remains of the bankrupt Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Company and moved all of the inventory to its current home in Broken Arrow. Doug Pray, Glen’s son, now owns and runs the company. Walking in as strangers without an appointment we were welcomed as old friends and given a complete tour. The amount of uncirculated rare automobile parts in this establishment is astounding. To illustrate this point, included is a photo of the upper level.

The ACD Company also has an amazing collection of aviation relics including  including an almost complete Beech 18! We also saw vintage midget race cars, dozens of toy pedal cars, a hidden kit Cobra and amazing hand built automobiles produced by the ACD Company.

Next time you are in the vicinity of Tulsa, Oklahoma be sure to visit the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Company. I know I’ll be back.
