Lot 408: Durant Model PK Pick-Up
William C. Durant founded General Motors, but lost control to banks when he became overextended. He later took over Chevrolet and upon folding it into General Motors he took control again. In 1921 he began Durant, which he planned to model on GM by creating different brands for different price levels. Durant was brought down, like so many, by the Depression. His company went under in 1933. He lived out his years in Flint Michigan on a small GM pension and wages from managing a bowling alley.
This Durant pickup truck is green with black fenders, a wood-lined bed and wood spoke wheels. The interior is black leather and the truck has a side-mounted spare.
This vehicle is a remnant of one of the most colorful of all motoring pioneers.
